Yves Saint Laurent Gala

May 2, 2017

This spring, VMFA will serve as the premiere East Coast venue for Yves Saint Laurent: The Perfection of Style. Drawn exclusively from the collection of the Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent, the exhibition features more than 100 haute couture and ready-to-wear garments, including new acquisitions that have never been shown publicly before.

A glamorous, invitation-only black tie gala, presented by Northern Trust Company, will kick off the opening week festivities on May 2, 2017.

Organized by a volunteer committee, the museum’s galleries and event spaces will be transformed to host a seated dinner and reception for 600 guests, including exhibition sponsors. Gala attendees will be among the first to preview the exhibition.

Yves Saint Laurent Gala tables may be purchased for $10,000, and individual tickets cost $1,000 per person (advance ticket sales only). Proceeds benefit Yves Saint Laurent: The Perfection of Style. You may also support the exhibition by purchasing raffle tickets to win a bracelet donated by Elizabeth Locke Jewels.

Ticketing for the Yves Saint Laurent Gala has now closed.

Please note that tickets will not be available at the door.
