The St. Louis arts community rose to the occasion last weekend at the ARTrageous Dotted Ball, a gala that raises funding for Craft Alliance’s scholarship program. A silent auction and cocktail reception kicked off the evening with a runway show and live auction to follow. After an intimate dinner, designer Timo Weiland (fresh off the plane from NYC) presented St. Louis’ first lady of fashion, Susan Sherman, with the Fashion Lab Award.

While many donned their own variations of the event’s signature dot motif, one fashion theme rang true throughout: Everyone was dressed to the nines. It’s clear that Craft Alliance’s Fashion Lab truly speaks to our city’s style elite.

Boo McLoughlin, Executive Director at Craft Alliance, was an elegant host who shared a very impactful message with attendees.
