Head to the Heard Museum on Friday, Sept. 17, from 5:30 to 9 p.m. for an evening of couture, cocktails, music, jewelry and Native American art. Vintage fashions from Robert Black‘s boutique, along with jewelry from the Heard Museum Shop will be modeled by Ford models.
Show your support for the Heard Museum and local fashion industry on Sept. 17. Museum-goers will be able to enjoy a cash bar and beats by DJ Danny Velvet as they mix and mingle while perusing items in the local boutique trunk show from 6 to 8 p.m.. The Berlin Gallery, shop and cafe will also stay open until 8 p.m., closing just before the models get the fashion portion of the event underway. Be prepared to see stunning pieces of Native American jewelry from the Heard Museum Shop, as well as chic vintage fashions from Robert Black’s boutique.
We can’t decide whether we’re more excited about the gems or the clothes. No doubt you remember we’ve cooed over the jewelry in the Heard’s shop before. If owning items that are one-of-a-kind is a priority for you, this is the place. The beautiful Southwestern pieces are handmade with exceptional craftsmanship, many in the traditional style of the artisan’s tribe, using elements such as turquoise, shell, gold, sterling silver, mother of pearl, malachite, coral and more. The necklaces, bracelets and earrings that feature beadwork are exquisite.
Before opening Fashion by Robert Black, a vintage clothing and accessory shop, Robert Black headed up the most successful modeling agency in the Valley. His work there soon translated into a love for fashion, and his boutique was born in fall 2009. The shop stocks a wide variety of items, mainly from the 1920s through the 1980s, from names like Halston, Chanel, Louboutin, Prada, Oleg Cassini, Gucci, Joseph Magnin and Manolo Blahnik — shoes, dresses, scarves, handbags and more.
Mark your calendars now so you don’t miss the chance to catch some truly inspiring fashions in the unique Heard Museum setting.
