THE SETTING: The show must go on. And, it certainly did during the pandemic with social protocol in place as the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League celebrated music and fashion at the seventh annual Fashion Notes Designer Award Luncheon and Style Show presented by Veritex Community Bank at the Fairmont Dallas. The runway sizzled as the latest styles strutted down the catwalk.
THE STYLE: The event consisted of the Fashion Notes Designer Award presentation, a live auction, a performance by DSO Young Strings cellist Rahel Lulseged, and a style show featuring the latest fashions from Tootsies. In recognition of the League’s 75th Anniversary, the recipients for the Designer Award were all the past presidents.
THE PURPOSE: Karen Cox chaired the event, with mother-daughter duo, Cile McCormick and Claire Catrino serving as honorary chairs. Anne Ligon serves as DSOL’s current president. The League is proud to be a part of the success of the Dallas Symphony. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Dallas Symphony Association and its education and community outreach programs for children and adults throughout Dallas and the surrounding areas.
The Dallas Symphony Orchestra League, founded in 1946, has a long tradition of support for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Throughout the last 75 years, the League has donated over $20 million to the Dallas Symphony.
