MOD: A Modern Take on ‘60s Fashion

Sep 12, 2014

A Night Designed For You

In partnership with Launch787, the LBJ Presidential Library has tapped seven Austin designers to each create custom modern looks based on Lady Bird Johnson’s evening gowns and a suit from her time in the White House. The original outfits, normally locked away in the Library’s storage vaults, will be on display alongside the modern looks for this night only.

Join us on Friday, September 12, for a fab night of fashion, cocktails, music and light bites featuring Austin’s best fashion designers Ross Bennett, Crowned Bird, Gail Chovan, Daniel Esquivel, Amber Perley, Boudoir Queen and Rare Trends.
