One year it’s sponsored by Chanel, another by Salvatore Ferragamo. Models, celebrities, and other bold-named personalities fly in for it from New York, Paris, London, LA. The evening is full of fun, fashion, dancing and art, in a setting sparkling with old world sophistication. Is it possible, one asks, for the Mid-Winter Gala to get more glamorous? Is it even?
This year, Dior will answer that question, as it joins Vanessa Getty and Trevor Traina in presenting the Mid-Winter Gala at the Legion of Honor on March 27, 2015. The annual black tie, by invitation-only event, co-chaired by Allison Speer and Kathryn Lasater, raises funds in support of the de Young and the Legion of Honor museums.
All of this is in anticipation of the opening, later this year, of Dior’s new 10,000 square foot space at 185 Post Street. With women wanting to look their absolute best for the evening, no doubt Brenda Zarate, Dior’s representative in San Francisco, will have a busy few months ahead of her! Perusing Dior’s most recent haute couture collection by Raf Simons, we see many beautiful options from which to choose.
