This year’s Whiplash fashion show will have a rock-n-roll edge with styles from Westport boutique WEST. WEST, known for its bi-coastal flare, features established California designers, as well as other inspired brands (many of them women-owned) from around the world. The models at Whiplash, both women and men, are all local creatives such as writers, clothing designers, jewelry designers, and artists. Together they will rock outfits styled by WEST and hair and makeup looks created by Whip Salon.

The evening will include a cocktail hour, live DJ, exhilarating fashion show, and an array of silent auction items for partygoers to bid on. Cylinder Vodka, an award-winning environmentally conscious spirits company based in Connecticut, will be introducing a signature Whiplash vodka cocktails for the attending fashionistas.

The Aldrich’s Executive Director, Cybele Maylone, commented: “Whiplash continues to bring an incredible energy to The Aldrich, and we are so pleased to have a fun celebration of the local creative community at the Museum. We are grateful to our board member Amy Pal—and the entire Whiplash committee—for bringing this exciting fundraiser together this fall!”

“I love that we are casting the net wider with the 2019 Whiplash fashion show to strategically attract an audience in Ridgefield and beyond,” said Amy Pal, owner of Whip Salon and Aldrich trustee. “I’m thrilled to be co-hosting this event to support the Museum with like-minded partners WEST and Cylinder Vodka who understand the importance of the arts in our community. The Aldrich is an incredible backdrop for this event and as a Trustee of The Aldrich my hope is that the fashion show will not only raise funds for the Museum, but bring awareness to this valuable resource in our community and a new audience to discover and delight in it.”
