Shiny dresses, jewelry, and sleek classic cars will be front-and-center during the third-annual 2019 Couture & Cars Fashion Show from 6:30-11 p.m. on July 20 at LeMay — America’s Car Museum in Tacoma.
When the doors open at 6:30 p.m., attendees will walk the red carpet and get their own photos as a DJ plays music. The show will begin at 7:10 p.m. showcasing local couture designers including Akrofi Adjumani, Dream Dresses by P.M.N, Gustavo Apiti Couture, MiMi Wolfe and The Brin Project by Reshma. An afterparty will follow at the museum.
Couture & Cars is the flagship event for Fashion District NW, the company producing it.
“The cars featured in the LeMay— America’s Car Museum are works of art, amazing pieces of craftsmanship, many with very unique and sleek design lines. What a great place to feature the designs of amazing couture designers, then surround their clothing designs with cars that share some of the same visual features,” said David Bailey of Fashion District NW. “This is the only couture-only fashion show in the region. (Also) a museum full of beautiful cars helps us attract more men to this fashion show then other shows.”
Tickets are $40-$75 and increase by $5 at the door. Buy tickets at eventbrite.com.
