Prix d’Elegance Luncheon
The Prix d’Elegance luncheon is an amazing event that over 600 guests attend every year and features a fashion show, auction and lovely lunch. Each year, Jeff’s Haberdasher and ChattaBox Boutique host a fashion show with wonderful fashions modeled by local New Orleanians. The fashion show begins with the actual NOBA dancers who attend the classes. This really helps to show the impact of this wonderful organization on the community. Throughout the luncheon, there are opportunities to bid on the silent auction and there is even a live auction with prizes. After the fashion show, all of the nominees will be called to the runway. Each award recipient will be escorted down the runway to the cheers of the crowd. This is truly wonderful event for our community.
