“Art exposes people to things that they do not normally see or think about, and brings inspiration to those that interact with it. All of which are vital for a successful community. Tulsa is a special city that is able to combine the feel of a big city with the friendliness and charm of a small town. Many cities try to achieve that feeling, few actually do.” ~ Zang Toi

In a return to the glamour and sophistication of the Golden Age of the Silver Screen as AAT’s Wine, Women & Shoes theme offers a nod to the elegance of Tulsa’s art deco era and to the alluring sirens of the silver screen during one incredible evening. Highlighted by a personal appearance and exclusive fashion show featuring the House of Toi Spring 2020 collection from award-winning New York designer, Zang Toi.

This exclusive show is brought to Wine, Women & Shoes through collaboration with our amazing community partner, Saks Fifth Ave. Tulsa.

What to Wear?!

Officially, please consider your cocktail ensembles perfection for this event. BUT, if you feel glamours and Silver-Screen-inspired, add the Veronica Lake Wave or a little M. Monroe appeal! And, don’t forget your fabulous shoes! If you wish to be part of the contest, they are a must. 

"The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls." - Pablo Picasso

We are thrilled to bring this event back to Tulsa and I am honored to lead our team in this “re-boot” of a nationally loved fundraising event. I’m also proud to serve on the board of Arts Alliance Tulsa. While we are still young, we have made large strides in our mission to raise funds for 40 local
non-profit arts organizations. This is work we can all be proud of as we expand our reach and make new friend that believe in what we do and believe in the arts of this great city. On behalf of all those involved with this event, I extend our greatest wishes to have you join us!

Best, Stacy
