Since 2022 Crystal Charity Ball Chair Susan Farris had announced that the theme for the ball on Saturday December 3 would have an Italian flavor, “Italiano Splendido”, he delighted fashion lovers that Dolce & Gabbana would be presented at the CCB Fashion Show chaired by Jennifer Dix Thursday, September 8.
When the big day arrived, it was obvious that Dolce & Gabbana was the dominant presence on the third floor of Neiman Marcus NorthPark. Evidence ranged from a wall displaying D&G’s new range of plates and a blonde philanthropist Nancy C. Rogers‘private champagne in the transformed Zodiac Room saluting the Italian design house to hundreds of stylish guests in D&G floral prints and majolica tiles throughout.
To accommodate the multitudes wanting to applaud the class of ten best dressed of 2022 (Mariebeth Conlon, Tiffany Divis, Monica Eastin, Libby Hegi, Kim Hext, Meredith Land, Karla McKinley, Anne McPherson, Amy Prestidge and Kim Quinn), Hall of fame Pat McEvoy and honorary president Gene Jonesin addition to discovering the new D&G collection, two presentations were necessary: a brunch and an afternoon delight.
