An annual day of extravagance is what Pique Nique is known for in the Sarasota community. On March 27 we celebrated our support of the New College of Florida with over-the-top hats, a stellar fashion show, and undeniably good food by Michael’s on East, all while overlooking the beautiful Gulf of Mexico bay.
What was different about this year? Yes, it rained, but it also rained metaphorically with showers of record-breaking donations! We are privileged to be part of an event that raised $164,000 to benefit the Jane Bancroft Cook Library at the New College of Florida, one of the top ranked liberal arts colleges in the US.
Now, let’s get to what we’re all thinking about: the fashion show! This year we presented a worldly collection and truly represented the traveler at heart in most of us here in Sarasota. Take a look at the slideshow for some of the unrivaled designs brought in just for Pique Nique by designers such as Marchesa, Ralph Lauren, DVF and many more.
