About the event

Join us on July 22nd, 2022, from 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM for a high tea event to commemorate the birth anniversary of iconic fashion designer Charles James and to kick off the upcoming Fashion & Culture Exhibition at the 1st Thursday Artwalk. Hosted at the charming outdoors of Andersen's Danish Bakery & Restaurant at 1106 State Street, Santa Barbara, CA, this gathering is a tribute to the timeless influence of Charles James and a prelude to the cultural richness of the forthcoming exhibition. 

Enjoy a selection of fine teas accompanied by cream and sugars, traditional cucumber & cream cheese and smoked Scottish salmon sandwiches, freshly baked seasonal scones, a delightful assortment of pastries and desserts including a small cream pastry, apple strudel, and petite fours, as well as a refreshing selection of seasonal fruits. We'll raise a glass of crisp champagne in tribute to Charles James' exceptional legacy.

As we savor these treats, we'll engage in enlightening conversations about Charles James and his muse, Mrs. William Randolph Hearst Jr.'s wife. We'll present his rare pattern designs, his journey amongst high society, and his lasting impact on contemporary fashion. This will provide a tantalizing preview of what to expect in the upcoming Fashion & Culture Exhibition, making this high tea not just a celebration but also a grand prelude to the artistic fashion and culture celebration that lies ahead.

Ticket Price: $75. Your ticket includes a full high tea experience, a celebratory glass of champagne, and engaging discussions about Charles James and his muse.
