Beach Drive: The Weekender Jan. 11 – 14


Another weekend of festivals, fashion, and fun in the hottest district in St. Pete! And we’d be remiss to let you miss the waning days of Dali & Schiaparelli’s In Daring Fashion exhibit – the first of its kind at the Dali Museum. If you make one plan this weekend, let it be this show!

ICY[A]MI (In Case You [Almost] Missed It): This weekend is your very last chance to see this iconic fashion-oriented display at the Dali Museum. Dali & Schiaparelli – presented in collaboration by The Dali Museum and Schiaparelli Paris – features haute couture gowns and accessories, jewelry, paintings, drawings, objects and photos, as well as new designs by Bertrand Guyon for Maison Schiaparelli. It is the first exhibition dedicated to the creative relationship and works of Elsa Schiaparelli and Salvador Dali – friends and collaborators that set Paris and the world ablaze with their groundbreaking visions.
