What: CITY: Susanne Bartsch — Art-A-Porter

When: October 6, 2017

Where: Tampa Museum of Art


It was colorful, flamboyant and certainly a break from tradition, for the 8th Annual CITY: Fashion + Art + Culture. Rescheduled due to Hurricane Irma, all the designers, suppliers and supporters of the Tampa Museum of Art came ready to celebrate. The “Queen of the Night” and event hostess, Susanne Bartsch, was wearing a nude body suit under a pouffy pink tulle and worked her charm and magic for the event, into the late night after party, Barstchland. New York DJ, Amber Valentine, played great music and kept the crowd dancing. Drag Queen Joey Arias performed several times throughout the evening. CITY co-chairs Pamela Wysocki, Billy Cole, and the entire committee, created a successful event, along with the Museum staff. Eight designers created the looks in an interactive show that featured the outrageous and bold. From Casey Caldwell’s designs with models wearing full face masks to Hana Quist’s use of knits made with large bundles of yarn, the designers showcased their designs. Designer Veritee Hill showcased a gothic glam with long black skirts and black lace that could spread like wings. The models descended the museum staircase and strutted to the pre-arranged vignette spaces. Guests enjoyed open bar and delicious food from Eddie V’s Prime Seafood.

Tampa Bay METRO was a proud event partner.
