It was a return to a magical evening of “new” Hollywood glam, as more than 30 models strutted the runway wearing more than 90 looks by designer Marc Bouwer, for the 9th annual CITY: Fashion + Art + Culture to benefit programs and education at Tampa Museum of Art.

The interactive, fashionable evening included glam gowns, swimwear and amazing head  pieces created by Bouwer. Bouwer is best known for dressing famous celebrities including Oprah, Beyonce, Shania Twain and Angelina Jolie.

Eddie V’s provided delicious shrimp cocktail, beef tenderloin and mahi mahi bites, outside under the museum’s portico. Specialty Pink Lady cocktails and open bar kept the party going with a dance party, with music by DJ James King.

Co-chairs for the 2018 event were Heather Van Nest and Eve Gloede, who wore stunning dresses by the designer. 

Tampa Bay METRO was a proud event partner.
