Date for Kentucky Derby Festival Fashion Show Set

American Founder Bank will be hosting the 2012 Kentucky Derby Festival Spring Fashion Show, which is entering its 21st year as a part of the Kentucky Derby Festival. This year’s show will be held on March 29th in the Showroom of Horseshoe Southern Indiana. The fashion show was first put on in 1990 and was originally developed to be an event for showing off the year’s Board of Directors’ uniforms and the traditional teal Pegasus jacket. Retailers all around Kentuckiana were very supportive and the show was such a success that it was made a permanent fixture to the Derby Festival. The theme for the 2012 show will be “Lights, Cameras, Fashion!” with Courier-Journal editor-in-chief of “her scene”, Christine Fellingham helping out with the show’s development. An array of clothing and accessory shops will be represented, including Olivia & Company, GUESS, Rodeo Drive, Dillard’s, and Apricot Lane, among others. Those who attend the show will be able to purchase official 2012 Derby Festival merchandise, as well as check out the Derby hats from Dillard’s and 2012’s trends in hair and makeup by Lyndia Willis Salon. In addition to outfits and hats, the program will showcase handbags, accessories and designer eyewear. Reserved seating for this spectacular event is $59 per person or $590 for a table of ten. Tickets are also available for general admission seating and are only $35. The show will begin with boutique shopping and cocktails at 5:30 p.m., with dinner at 7 p.m. and the runway show at 8 p.m. sharp.
