Styling at Au Courant

Preceding summer’s StyleWeek Northeast, six designers got a chance to showcase their fashions at the soirée. If local reaction is any gauge, their collections will be well received at the big event in August.

Guests sipped cocktails, enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, and delighted in the long delayed arrival of warm weather, strolling the grounds before the runway show began.

The almost-summer evening was perfect, with gentle breezes blowing off the water, beautiful models sporting the newest styles, and the spirited audience rooting for both the up-and-coming designers and the Child & Family program.
