Come celebrate the launch of Carolyne Roehm’s newest book, Design & Style: A Constant Thread with an elegant High Tea, Charleston style. Featuring a brief discussion of her book, Carolyne and her guests will enjoy lively conversations, traditional high tea canapés and champagne. Join us for this memorable afternoon.

Lifestyle icon Carolyne Roehm has been a part of American design culture for more than four decades, with a storied career spanning the world of fashion, decorative arts, gardening, entertaining, and publishing. A discerning eye and passion for beauty led her into the world of flowers, where her books on the subject have been hailed as the best in their field. In her thirteenth book,Design & Style: A Constant Thread, to be released in October 2018, Ms. Roehm reminisces on her remarkable life and the constant creative thread that has remained unchanged throughout.

For the first time talking about her past, from growing up in small-town Missouri to finding a mentor in Oscar de la Renta, this book is a window into a life lived in the spotlight. Touching on the icons of her life, including her seamstress grandmother and stylish mother and, of course, de la Renta himself, Ms. Roehm will share stories with the audience and toast to a life lived well enjoyed.

Tickets for this special event are $95 and will include a copy of Design & Style: A Constant Thread.  Because we know this will be a coveted ticket, we encourage you to make plans early to join us for the reception.  There will be both standing and seated tables available with plenty of room to mingle with your friends as they enjoy Design & Style: A Constant Thread with the legendary Carolyne Roehm.
