More than 400 Attend Arizona Costume Institute Holiday Luncheon

Guests hear art historian’s perspective on artist/designer Mariano Fortuny.

Arizona Costume Institute’s popular Holiday Luncheon drew a sold-out crowd of 437 to Phoenix Art Museum on Dec. 6. The event raised funds to support the programs of the museum’s Fashion Design Collection.

Guests enjoyed a champagne reception during which they bought raffle tickets for an array of prizes that were drawn at the end of the luncheon. Charles Lewis provided piano music during the the social hour, which was followed by a delicious plated luncheon of “petite garden bites” prepared by Santa Barbara Catering.

A highlight of the afternoon was the presentation by art historian Guillermo de Osma, founder of his eponymous gallery in Madrid and the world’s foremost specialist on artist/designer Mariano Fortuny. His book Fortuny: His Life and Work was available for purchase and signing in The Museum Store.

For the fourth consecutive year, Miriam Sukhman underwrote the speaker. Craig Pearson underwrote the beautiful florals at the tables, and White House Design Studio provided the décor. Chrissy Sayare of To Be Continued was the presenting sponsor. Adrienne Schiffner served as the luncheon chair.
