Talk about topping things off! The milliners of the 2014 show “HATtitude: the Milliner in Culture & Couture” returned to ArtsWestchester for a special pop-up hat shop, adding a taste of fashion to a recent craft beer and food event. It was a pair made in fashion/food heaven.
Attendees, both men and women, got to pick-up a lawn party fascinator or a fashionable summer shade-maker. The millinery pop-up shop was also open on Saturday during Family Arts Bash, with proceeds from sales supporting ArtsWestchester and its programs.
ArtsBash featured pours of Brooklyn Brew, Ithaca Brew and Kelso Brew as well as tastings from 30 top area restaurants were paired with an evening of food and art featuring works by more than 20 artists.
“From the arts perspective, collaboration with Half Time and local craft breweries will help ArtsWestchester attract young professionals to our gallery and to our unique arts events,” said Janet T. Langsam, CEO of ArtsWestchester. “Just as Half Time’s stores attract customers from afar, the arts attract cultural tourists who enjoy lifestyle and leisure activities to Westchester’s cities and towns. By partnering with the food and beverage industries at ArtsBash and other events, it’s a win-win for the cultural consumer.”
Hats off to that!
