AWA BTSSB Tea Party 

The AWA BTSSB Tea Party Has sold out. Thank you all so much! 

Join us on Sunday afternoon in the gallery for a delightful and tasty event with Baby, the Stars Shine Bright fashion designer Masumi Kano. The theme is “Belle Charmante Après-midi” which combines the charm and beauty of the south with the elegance, grace and sophistication of BTSSB.  All guests, upon entering the gallery, will soon notice the allure and magic that brings to mind an enchanting village in the south of France.

As always, You MUST have an AWA membership to attend the Tea. IDs will be checked at the door against the registration list To do a transfer, email with the "Transfer From" and Transfer to" information. (Legal name, email and identifier from the purchase), Transfers will end on 14-Sept.

Dress code is "Fancy Dress". If you own BTSSB it is a perfect opportunity to wear it to the Tea. If not, please choose your most fancy J-Fashion dress coordinates. No replicas, please. 

We look forward to sharing a delightful “Belle Charmante Après-midi” with you.
