Attention “Fashionistas” because we’re bringing the runway to the Royal Sonesta’s Round Table this month. On Wednesday May 21st at 12:00 Noon, slip into something chic and join us as three local experts discuss the latest spring fashion trends, update us on a worthy causes, and delve into New Orleans’ thriving fashion industry. Hosted by the ever-stylish Margarita Bergen in the elegant Fleur de Lis Suite, enjoy a lively discussion, sample the hotel’s delicious cuisine and celebrate all things couture with plenty of champagne, darlings.
Andi Eaton, founder of the NOLA Fashion Council and owner of Hazel & Florange boutique, will share chic fashion tips as only one of the city’s most talented stylists and best-dressed women can do.  
FestiGals spokesperson Sandra Dartus will update us on this annual women-centric celebration taking place in New Orleans this June.  Dartus will even provide a sneak peek of celebrity-designed bra-art to be auctioned off during FestiGals signature ‘Bodacious Bras for a Cause’ luncheon. Proceeds benefit targeted women’s causes.
Founder and Creative Director of Fashion Week New Orleans, Tracee Dundas will share her in depth knowledge on all things in vogue. This go-to-gal for fashion is redefining what it means to be fashionable in the Crescent City.
The luncheon just wouldn’t be complete without a stroll down the catwalk so fashion designer Dominique Ansari has a mini fashion presentation planned just for the occasion.  A local designer who specializes in “Comfort Couture,” Ansari firmly believes that all women should feel relaxed and comfortable in their own skin.
Resident pianist and Round Table favorite Jim Walpole will entertain guests with his musical stylings throughout the event. 
Royal Sonesta’s expert culinary team has prepared an elegant three-course menu which begins with a Baby Spinach and Ponchatoula Strawberry Salad with Feta Crumbles, Slivered Almonds, Sweet Basil, Burnt Honey and Chili Vinaigrette. The entrée features a duet of Annatto Marinated Pork Tenderloin and Champagne Scented Grilled Gulf Shrimp with House Made Ricotta, Citrus Jasmine Rice, Black Pepper Olive Oil and Lemongrass Beurre Blanc.
