Wilsey Court

Wilsey Court is the site of a high-fashion runway glittering with Bulgari images where guests pose with movie star lookalikes and strut down the catwalk, their images captured in classic Bulgari style. Dozens of lucky guests are welcomed into our styling chairs to have hair and makeup transformed in a matter of minutes by the master stylists of Atelier Emmanuel. At the evening’s climax, a fashion show of cutting-edge women’s wear, hosted by Brad Rosenstein, spotlights the designs of Nika Tang, Cindy Quach, and Feijing Song + Erica Kim, alumna of the Academy of Art University’s School of Fashion.

Casino Couture
5:30–8:00 pm
A game of chance and trivia selects the 60 lucky participants who will receive the attention of professional stylists before taking to the catwalk in the public fashion show to be held at the end of this glamorous evening.

Glamour Queens
6:00–8:30 pm
Flanking the catwalk will be Sophia Loren and Marilyn Monroe lookalikes, ready to cast the Hollywood spell for photo-ops.

Fashion Show
7:45–8:15 pm
In the moment we’ve been preparing for, emerging and established designers bring the glamour of the fashion world to the catwalk for a runway show, followed by our dolled up public models who take to the runway in the spirit of Bulgari. Emceed by Brad Rosenstein and stage managed by Gregangelo and Velocity Circus.
