Mom & Dad Walking By Theater in San Francisco

Once upon a time the Good People of Shreveport dressed up to go shopping downtown. The country cousins were also expected to wear a dress & heels or sport coat in order to shop respectably on Texas and Milam Streets. If your mom, dad or grandparents were among that set and you've managed to save any of their nicer clothing, your time in the sun has begun.
An Antique Couture Road Show featuring clothing consultants from Saks Fifth Avenue will visit Artspace on Sat, Jan 13, from 4-8 pm, says Pam Atchison. Fashion mavens from Northwest Louisiana are respectfully requested to present their vintage gowns and downtown clothing to be photographed and evaluated by the Saks team.
Curator Mark Hermasillo will review the photographs and call on the people with the clothing that fits the show. Additionally, a slide show of all the outfits and accessories that are brought to the Antique Fashion Road Show will be produced.
The Artspace fashion exhibit at the end of this process, In Fashion, The Art of Style, will open Fri, Feb 2. The show will feature regional couture discoveries from the Saks review (1940's to 1970's) as well as Hermosillo's collection of fashion and design.
Steve Ross will join Hermosillo in producing the show. Hermasillo and Ross are the Los Angeles-based interior design team for Bill Robinson, benefactor to Chimp Haven and Robinson Film Center, among several local institutions

Don't look for an earlier post I made from an In Fashion PR post card from SRAC. My first article missed the tone of this event by a plaid suit.
