Last year, it was the fashion of the future. In other years, guests have dressed in Cuban style, as circus entertainers and other themes.
This year, the fashion will take an “extreme” turn as the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands holds its annual fundraising gala on Friday, Nov. 30.
The theme is inspired by the current exhibit, “Art of Fashion,” which features the creations of two Cayman Islands designers and runs through Nov. 28.
The gala is the gallery’s major income producer for the year. Funds from last year’s event provided the gallery with supplies and teaching resources for the education department and helped to fund the multifaceted Family Fun program.
The money also ensured that admission to all the exhibitions remained free of charge. Guests are encouraged to adopt the extreme fashion dress code for this year’s event and organizers have published a Pinterest page at natgalcayman, to share visual collections of extreme fashion-inspired looks as inspiration.
