Dallas Symphony Orchestra League’s Annual Fashion Notes Luncheon Is Back For A Good Cause

Marking the beginning of the holiday event season, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League is hosting its 8th Annual Fashion Notes Luncheon and Style Show on Thursday, October 21. One of the city’s most anticipated philanthropic events, the soirée highlights local fashion and the contributions of the symphony community in Dallas.

In anticipation of the big event, we sat down with co-chair Kameron Westcott to learn more about this year’s event details and what guests can expect.

What special details will this year’s event include?

Kameron Westcott: This year, pink details will be everywhere! My co-chair, Samantha Wortley, and I really wanted to create a memorable atmosphere of flair and fun with our signature favorite color — pink. When our guests purchase raffle tickets, they’ll receive a pink light-up ring that they’ll be able to wear during the PINK party and luncheon. (Our invitations are also pink.)

What can you tell us about this year’s Fashion Notes Designer Award?

KW: We are so honored and excited to present this year’s distinguished Fashion Notes Designer Award to local fashion designer Nardos Imam. Known for her glamour and grace, Nardos offers women the art of custom-designed, signature fashions for special occasions and she’s an integral part of our local community here in Dallas.

We designed the luncheon invitations in the silhouette of one of Nardos’ gorgeous gowns, too. Her award is well-deserved and we’re excited to continue to spread the word about her amazing work.

We love a fun raffle. What will the winners receive?

KW: The year, we opted for a raffle instead of a Mystery Notes gift pull because we wanted to curate truly special packages for our attendees. The winners are in for a treat. From a Ritz-Carlton staycation to a private shopping party at a local boutique, every luxury package would be incredible gift to take home.

What can we look forward to at the fashion show?

KW: Guests will enjoy a reception followed by the luncheon and live auction at Fairmont Dallas. Fall fashions by Tootsies and Jojo Mommy will be modeled by several of past and present league members and their families. The fall is the perfect time to start thinking about holiday fashions.

We love how the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League gives so much back to the community. What organizations benefit from the fashion event?

KW: Proceeds from our event this year will benefit the Dallas Symphony Association and its education and community outreach programs, including DSO on the GO, Community Concerts & Performances, Cecil & Ida Green Youth Concerts, Symphony Yes!, DSO Kids, Young Strings and Young Musicians.

The DSOL Fashion Notes Designer Award Luncheon and Style Show will take place at Fairmont Dallas on October 21 starting with a VIP Reception at 10:30 am. Tickets can be purchased at dallassymphonyleague.com
