Since 1955, Globe Guilders have played a critical role at The Old Globe, hosting events such as the Globe Guilders Fashion Show, selling subscriptions, greeting and transporting artists, assisting in the Costume Shop, raising money and volunteering for the theatre. Each year, the Globe Guilders Fashion Show raises much-needed funds to support The Old Globe’s artistic, education and community programs. Guests are in for a show stopping fashion experience at Celebrating Couture 2012, where the Globe Guilders and Neiman Marcus will present the gifted and world-renowned fashion designer Monique Lhuillier’s Fall 2012 Collection. Mark the date of August 7 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront because Celebrating Couture 2012 is not to be missed.

Monique Lhuillier studied at the highly respected Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles, but it was when she searched for her own wedding gown that she realized she had found her niche. She launched her first bridal collection in 1996, to generous reviews as Lhuillier designs ensure every woman will be beautiful. Lhuillier’s garments are both scene stealing and classic. No wonder her red carpet gowns are adored and worn with great pride by beauties like Gwyneth Paltrow, Hilary Swank, Drew Barrymore and Lea Salonga, of Miss Saigon fame, who will soon be seen in the world premiere production of Allegiance at The Old Globe. Salonga is also the headliner at this summer’s Globe Theatre Gala this summer.

Join over 600 supporters of The Old Globe from the San Diego community, including prominent philanthropists, heads of corporations and representatives of major organizations at this annual event that has become a staple on San Diego’s fashion calendar.
