Picture this: It’s a lovely Charleston spring morning, and you’re spending it dining in the tented courtyard of the Gibbes Museum while being regaled with stories about life in the New York City fashion fast lane. It must be your lucky day, because the Women’s Council of the Gibbes Art Museum is presenting a lecture with New York Times fashion critic and blogger Cathy Horyn, whose critiques are so biting she’s been banned from designer shows, most notably Giorgio Armani. Despite — or maybe because of — that, she’s a highly sought-after journalist who contributes to newspapers and magazines like Vanity Fair, Vogue, and Harper’s Bazaar. A silent auction featuring fine art, jewelry, fashion, and more will take place prior to the luncheon. And since your ticket also includes museum admission, spend some time afterward checking out the Gibbes. It’ll be the perfect ending to your fashionable afternoon.
