This elegant event will bring together more than 200 of the Michener’s friends and patrons for an evening honoring world-renowned fashion designer Ralph Rucci. Guests will be treated to a cocktail reception followed by a seated dinner presented by Catering By Design in the spectacular Edgar N. Putman Event Pavilion. The evening will also showcase designs by emerging talent from the Philadelphia Fashion Incubator. Funds raised through the Fashion Fête will enable the Michener to continue to enrich lives through outstanding exhibitions and educational programming.

Philadelphia native Ralph Rucci is the only American-based designer to be invited to show as part of the official calendar at the Paris Haute Couture. Rucci’s garments have been featured in exhibitions at The Museum at FIT, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Michener is especially delighted to welcome Mr. Rucci following the much-lauded launch of his new RR331 line at this year’s New York Fashion Week.
