Beauty in Flight:  A Fashion Show to Benefit Rose Brooks Center

An elite and diverse collection of Kansas City’s fashion community will present a small collection of their fall fashions at Beauty in Flight:  A Fashion Show to Benefit Rose Brooks Center. 

This year we’re excited to have The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art as our venue…a stunning setting offering the perfect back-drop for Fall 2008 ready-to-wear collections.  This combination of high-end retail and progressive fashion will attract a special customer. $75 purchases a standard ticket, and for $200, you receive a Patrons Ticket, which includes valet parking, the patron's party and a goody bag. Friends of Ink receive a discounted rate of $60 per standard ticket if they enter FRINK in the discount code portion of our online ticket page, found at

The event will be on August 21, 2008 with a 6:00 to 7:00 pm Patron’s reception in the atrium at The Kemper’s Café Sebastienne.  Patrons will enjoy complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and a chance to bid on clothing and accessory items in a silent auction.  They will also have a chance to meet with the boutique representatives and up and coming designers. 

At 7 pm, doors open to all guests with music, cash bar, silent auction items provided by the boutiques and an additional runway in a tented style lounge right outside the doors at The Kemper.  We’re thrilled to kick off the show with a live performance by Kansas City’s Quixotic Performance Ensemble at 7:45.  There will be 12 – 15 boutiques with 3 showings each so we expect the show to last for approximately an hour. Boutiques that have confirmed include:
Addie Rose
Deegie's Carma
Hudson & Jane
Miriam Garvey
Molly Jayne's
Soho 119
Standardstyle Boutique
T Wynn Studio
Tomboy Design
Will Wyatt's Cowboy Couture

Please join us at this one-of-a-kind fund-raiser developed to raise funds and awareness in support of Rose Brooks Center, an organization focused on breaking the cycle of violence so that individuals and families can live free of abuse.

We invite you to “take flight” with us at our special event designed around supporting a charity…fashionably.
