It’s time to get excited! Fashion in the Country is coming to Oak Spring Farm in Upperville, Virginia, on Sunday, May 21. Just like every year, this special event is a wonderful way to support the community as we all wait with bated breath to see who’s going to strut down the runway next!
Purchased by Alex and Jill Vogel in the fall of 2015, Oak Spring Farm is a beautiful 283-acre estate featuring a grand, Georgian-style mansion and a lake. It was originally part of the 2,000-acre Mellon estate. Bunny Mellon and her husband, Paul, lived in the home briefly, but soon turned it into a private museum for their impressive art collection. Many famous people have visited the farm, including Queen Elizabeth II and John F. Kennedy.
Wine tastings and wine will be provided by Greenhill Winery & Vineyards. Their award-winning wines are sure to please your palate. The 2015 Chardonnay, produced in the traditional Burgundy method, recently won Double Gold in the San Francisco Chronicle’s Wine Competition.
The bartenders may look familiar. Many of the Windy Hill Foundation Board members will be behind the bar, serving up your favorite drinks.
Food will be provided by Bluewater Kitchen, an amazing farm-to-table caterer who specializes in fresh, local cuisine. They work hand-in-hand with farmers and ranchers around Loudoun County to develop fare that’s both delicious and sustainable.
Our master of ceremonies for the afternoon will once again be the fabulous Tom Sweitzer. He’s charming, hilarious, and well, we can’t wait to hear what he has to say this year!
At least nine local boutiques will be presenting their wares in the show. Shops like Lou Lou, Highcliffe Clothiers, Tully Rector and Stitch will be there, as well as Mystique Jewelers, who opened their storefront in Middleburg in May.
Who will be modeling this year? It’s always a surprise! You might see your neighbor, your mechanic, or even your pizza guy walking down the runway, looking like a million bucks. Our models are always dressed to impress and sure to please!
Join us for an afternoon full of spectacular wine, food, and people. The proceeds will benefit Windy Hill Foundation, an organization committed to providing affordable housing to families in Loudoun County and the surrounding area. Every dollar not only helps us fund housing projects, but it also enables us to run programs like Study Buddies, Teen Time, and our extremely popular summer camp.
We look forward to seeing you at Fashion in the Country.
