Article excerpt

A very special fashion event is coming up Nov. 4 and 5. Actually, one could call it a really, really special fabulous event featuring Judith Leiber designs. Those unique and costly, elegant and unabashedly extravagant handbags and accessories will be shown as a benefit for the Cardiac Arrythmia Research Institute of the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.

Under the chairmanship of Brenda McDaniel and Stacy McDaniel, a collection of First Ladies Handbags, made for wives of U.S. presidents, photos and replicas from history, will be on exhibition and Judith Leiber will have a large collection of bags and accessories for viewing and for sale.

On Nov. 4 will be a private pre-party for donors and sponsors, featuring a private art collection - plus an opportunity to design your own Judith Leiber bag. On Nov. 5, the exhibit and sale will open at 10:30 a.m. at Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club. Leiber purses can bear a $3,000 price tag. A luncheon and program are planned at noon.

Luncheon reservations are $65 per person and tables for 10 guests are available for $650. Patron reservations, which include two invitations to the pre-party and two seats at the luncheon, are $500 per couple. All proceeds will further research on heart rhythm disturbances.

Marti Ferretti is honorary chairman of the benefit and Jane Harlow is patron chairman.

For information or reservations, call Pam Ivester at 271-1657.
