    On Wednesday, April 2, Dillard’s—the official hat provider of the Kentucky Derby Festival—presents Runway for the Roses at the Mellwood Arts & Entertainment Center, Ballroom #3. In collaboration with Gunnar Deatherage and Nfocus Magazine, Dillard’s Runway for the Roses is a theatrical fashion event that creatively stages Derby season’s hottest fashions in the midst of a festive social scene.

    “We are going to take a theatrical and introspective look at the phenomenon we call Derby,” says Nfocus Fashion Editor Gunnar Deatherage. “Last year, we did a hybrid event with film. This year, the genre is theater. Like last year, you can expect some amazing live music. As for all other aspects, expect the unexpected.”

    Other sponsors include Bluegrass Motor Sports, Cellar Door, Four Roses Bourbon,, Glass Label, Highland Cleaners, Korbel, Lavender Hill, Lenihan Sotheby's International Realty, Lite 106.9, Massage Envy, Norton Commons, Oak Street Productions, Old 502 Winery, Physician's Center for Beauty, Tito's Handmade Vodka & West Sixth Brewing.

    This is a 21+ event and tickets are non-refundable, General Admission tickets are $35 and VIP tickets are $60. Proceeds from the event benefit Horses For Hope, a local charity that supports those working behind the scenes at Churchill Downs. 

    Tickets are still available on Xorbia

    Below is a trailer of the event, I look forward to seeing many familiar faces!
