A vintage fashion show presented by the Dallas Woman’s Forum will benefit the restoration of Alexander Mansion.
The Queen of Hearts Vintage Fashion Show and Afternoon Tea will take place Feb. 13 at the mansion, located at 4607 Ross Ave.
The afternoon will feature fashions from the 1900s to the 1980s. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase the looks via a silent auction, with all proceeds benefitting the restoration of Alexander Mansion.
“Antiques Roadshow” appraiser Steven Porterfield will travel from his home in Midland to narrate the show. Each year, Porterfield drives more than 45,000 miles across the country in search of antique and vintage fashion and accessories. His current collection spans the decades of 1740 to 2000.
Tea will be catered by Chocolate Angel. The menu includes white chocolate cranberry scones, tea sandwiches, petite quiche, chicken salad tartlet, ham and gruyère puff pastry, assorted fruit, assorted sweet pastries and a loose-leaf tea paired with each course. Vegetarian or gluten-free menus will be provided if requested.
The tea begins at noon, and the fashion show at 1:30 p.m. The silent auction will follow at 3 p.m.
Tickets are $70. Reservations are required and are only accepted in groups of four, five or six guests because of limited seating per social distancing requirements. Reservations can be canceled up to four days before the event but are subject to a $5 fee per person.
