From black tie to tie dye: Heritage Foundation helps ball guests dress

The Heritage Ball is Williamson County’s longest-running black-tie event.

But this year, the black tie gets a twist.

In honor of Emily Magid, longtime preservationist, presenting sponsor and chair of the 45th Heritage Ball, this year’s black-tie The affair will have a tie-dye theme.

And for those who strive to be theme compliant, Heritage Foundation is hosting a pop-up stock and trunk show, and offering a selection of tie dye bow ties that will also raise money for their preservation mission.

The bow ties are from local artisan Crewkerne Neckwear, formerly known as Broties. Prices range from $45-$65 for cotton or silk ties, respectively. The ties can be purchased in the lobby of Lehew Magid Big House for Historic Preservation (the “old, old jail”) located at 112 Bridge Street, Franklin.

Fashion editor and celebrity stylist Milton White will curate an exclusive pop-up on Thursday, July 26, and Friday, July 27, that will feature gowns, handbags and jewelry. There will be merchandise available for immediate purchase as well samples available for special orders. All sales will be final.
