Stylish art

The evening gown display was one of the hot spots at the Shreveport Regional Arts Council gala Friday opening of “In Fashion, The Art of Style.”

But so were the wedding gowns.

Kay Brown was absolutely thrilled that her mother’s gown was included. It is a blue lace worn by Lorine Praesel on her marriage to Earnest Tausch, Brown’s father. The wedding date: 1942 during World War II.

A red wedding dressing belonged to Pertrice Worley’s mom who was married in 1936 on her 18th birthday.

A Hattie Carnegie ensemble once belonged to Jen Moore Lewis.
Betty Anthony, who contributed hats, attended with Brenda Willerby. Kay Redstone, with hubby Bobby Redstone in tow, was working the crowd. Her Givenchys and a Nina Ricci were part of the exhibit.

SRAC president Delton Harrison was gussied up in a tux — always in style — for he was heading around the corner to Shreveport Convention Center for the Krewe of Justinian Grand Bal.

If you missed the “In Fashion...” opening, don’t fret. The show is up through March 10.

Want to see real up-to-the minute fashions?

Saks Fifth Avenue will have a show at artspace on March 2, announced Steve Ross, “In Style” show producer.

“With informal modeling,” added SRAC chairwoman Sandi Kallenberg.
