On March 29, 2013, a group of riders and horse people celebrated the final week of the Winter Equestrian Festival with a private trunk show by Houghton, to benefit the Pediatric AIDS Foundation. Katherine Polk is the genius behind this stunning line of effortlessly chic luxury clothing. We spent the evening sipping cocktails and admiring a pair of beautiful models while Houghton’s recent runway show from New York’s Fashion Week played on various televisions around Triple Bar Bistro. Racks upon racks of clothing were the backdrop to the event for the attendees to admire and try on! A portion of all proceeds were donated to the Pediatric AIDS Foundation. A good cause, beautiful couture clothing, and wonderful guests. Horse & Style was proud to present this event with Marshall & Sterling Insurance, and we sincerely thank everyone who came out in support!

Look for a feature article on Katharine Polk in the next Horse & Style, as well as many more photos  from this fabulous event! Special thanks to photographer Christina Gray.
