The Art Deco Weekend Black Tie Ball is the exciting conclusion to a full Saturday at Newport! Headlining this year with be the amazing Beantown Swing Orchestra. Expect to hear all the great hits of the 1930’s and 40’s!
The theme for the evening is “Black Tie” dress of the art deco period. Dress code is not mandatory, but the suggestion is for dinner jackets (tuxedos) for the men and fancy dress for the ladies. For more info on this go to the “Black Tie Guide” website. Naturally, this website is devoted to men’s formal wear, but it is a wealth of information about cultural standards and is a great way to understand the period. Also see the “What to Wear” tab above for more vintage clothing info.
