The Tuxedo Park Autumn Ball 2014 to benefit the Tuxedo Historical Society Saturday October 24

"The Tuxedo Park Autumn Ball 2014"
Saturday, October 25th, 7:00 p.m.

"What carnival is to nice, the Autumn Ball is to tuxedo..."  Dance Magazine, September 1929. 

The Autumn Ball was, for many years, Tuxedo Park's most glamorous event and was considered to be the opening of the New York City social season.  The first Autumn Ball was in 1886, the year the Tuxedo Club was founded, and was held annually thereafter until 1971 when changes societal and population changes suspended the event. 

In 2011 the Tuxedo Historical Society (THS) marked the 125th anniversary of the first Autumn Ball with an Autumn Ball re-imagined for a new century.  In collaboration with London College of Fashion (LCF) Autumn Ball 2011 celebrated the "Little Black Jacket" -- the garment imported from England that quickly became named for our community when gentlemen from the Tuxedo Club wore it publicly in New York City.

So great was the success of Autumn Ball 2011 that the Tuxedo Historical Society and London College of Fashion have partnered again.  But this year it is all about the ladies!  The theme for Autumn Ball 2014 is the "Art of Dress - Celebrating Centuries of Dress Evolution", a project by LCF showcasing couture student designs inspired by dresses through the ages.  Many of the student designed dresses will be on display before traveling on to events in Dubai, Shanghai and Florence.

To receive an invitation to the Tuxedo Park Autumn Ball, IMMEDIATELY contact THS at tuxedoab14@gmail.com or (845)351-2926.  Seating is limited.  Tickets for Tuxedo Park Autumn Ball 2014 are $350, which includes a $175 tax-deductible contribution to THS.  The evening will include a cocktail reception, a display of rare vintage automobiles, a sumptuous dinner and dancing to a full orchestra.  Dress is black tie (of course) for gentlemen and evening glamour for ladies.
