The Junior Committee of the Women’s Guild brought more than 100 guests to its Storyville-themed Halloween Party as a local complement to the New Orleans Opera’s season opener of “La Traviata.” The Tradsters provided music, while guests dined on an array of hors d’oeuvres, desserts and wine provided by Martin’s Wine Cellar.
New Orleans Fashion Week partnered with the Junior Committee to present evening gowns by Pedram Couture and lingerie from Bonjour Lingerie. International dancer Bella Blue performed two burlesque pieces for guests.
In addition to live music, dances and fashion presentations, a raffle with more than $1,000 in prizes included jewelry, a NOMA family membership, artwork, gift certificates, gift baskets and concert tickets.
Proceeds from the event benefited productions and education programs presented by the New Orleans Opera Association.
