Gala Dresses: Making an Entrance with Elegance

Gala dresses are the stars of the show, and this collection does not disappoint. From classic silhouettes to modern designs, there’s a gala dress for every taste. 

For a timeless and sophisticated look, consider a floor-length A-line gown with delicate detailing such as our GAIA A-LINE TRAPEZE DRESS, FLORAL

This style exudes grace and ensures you make a memorable entrance. Made in a mix of crepe satin fabrics and patterns, this roomy A-line silhouette features a V-neck with raised collar, elegant long sleeves, side-seam pockets and asymmetrical hem that hits at the mid-calf. Pattern placement will vary. 

Gala Outfit: The Power of Coordination

Coordinating a gala outfit can be a delightful challenge. The After Dark Collection simplifies this process by offering matching sets and separates that allow for versatility without compromising on style. 

Pair a fitted skirt with a flowy top for a playful yet elegant look as seen here with our GOODFELLA PENCIL SKIRT, BLACK and SYNERGY TUNIC TOP, GOLD.

The decadent flared A-line tunic top features patchwork panels of mesh fabrics in a variety of velvet designs. Details include V-neck, dramatic hi-lo curved hem, plus a drawstring for cinching at the waist. Comes with a jersey knit slip top to pair. 

The high-waisted pencil skirt hits right at the mid-calf and is made in a stretchy, smoothing micro ribbed knit and an all-around elastic waistband for comfort. 

You may also like the look of a tailored blazer with wide-legged trousers for a chic and modern ensemble. Turn heads in our new EMPRESS A-LINE JACKET, YELLOW and JACQUARD TAPESTRY PANTS, YELLOW

The top features intricate floral designs in luxurious textured jacquard. Details include an open front design made for layering, plus front welt pockets for functionality and three-quarter slightly flared sleeves.

The loose wide-leg cropped pants are designed in a textured jacquard fabric. Antique-like detail in the floral imprinted pattern merges with  contemporary flair in this sophisticated barrel-leg pant silhouette. All-around elastic waist for comfort, with deep oversized patch pockets.

The collection encourages you to express your unique style while adhering to the formality of the event.

Fundraiser Outfit Ideas: Beyond the Dress

While gala dresses are undoubtedly showstoppers, the After Dark Collection extends its reach to provide comprehensive fundraiser outfit ideas. 

Consider a tier of layers for a modern and sophisticated twist that allows for more flexibility in your style. A perfect example is our new MONARCH A-LINE JACKET, ROYAL, ATLANTIS SLEEVELESS TUNIC TOP, ROYAL and KICK FLARE CURATOR PANTS, BLACK

A beautiful floral jacquard adds a feminine touch to this sharp A-line jacket. Details also include an open front design made for layering, plus front welt pockets for functionality, and three-quarter slightly flared sleeves. 

The sleeveless, scoop neck, pullover tunic top is an A-line silhouette made in an ultra-soft jersey mixed with mesh blue and black dots at the ruffle tiered hem. 

The pants are designed in a stretchy ribbed knit fabric that provides a snug yet flexible fit to effortlessly adapt to your movements. Features include side-seam pockets and a smooth all-around elastic waistband, too.

The collection encourages you to explore different outfit combinations, ensuring you find the perfect look that aligns with your personal style and the formality of the event.

Gala Dinner Outfit: Balancing Comfort and Glamor

Fundraiser dinners often involve a combination of sitting, standing, and socializing. Finding the right balance between comfort and glamor is essential. 

The After Dark Collection offers dresses with thoughtful design elements, such as stretch fabrics and strategic draping, ensuring you can move with ease while still looking effortlessly chic. 

Consider a midi-length dress such as our MOONBEAM MIDI DRESS, ROYAL with a tasteful slit for a perfect fusion of sophistication and comfort.

This standout silhouette is made in a crinkled crepe satin abstract pattern inspired by shibori, a Japanese manual tie-dyeing technique. In a can’t-be-missed rich royal blue, it has a straight silhouette, half-button placket with pointed collar, signature draped front pockets, elbow-length dolman sleeves, and a curved hem that hits at the mid-calf, finished with side slits. The necklace seen is not for sale; it is this model’s own jewelry.

Always in Vogue: Black Punto Pants

Fundraising events are undoubtedly special occasions, and your outfit should reflect the significance of the evening. The After Dark Collection offers formal outfits that strike the perfect balance between sophistication and on-trend style. We say, you can never have enough punto pants in classic black such as our new JACQUARD PUNTO PANTS, BLACK paired with the matching JACQUARD V-NECK TUNIC TOP, BLACK.

Enjoy the comfort and beauty of our best-selling Punto Pants – they’re light, relaxed, breathable and have a universally flattering silhouette. Chic architectural shaping makes them unique, with tapered detail at the draped pouf hem.  Stretchy all-around waist and mock fly make this choice a no-brainer.

The pullover tunic top, in a decadent textured jacquard knit, has a silhouette that starts out fitted at the bust, then flares slightly at the waist, offering more coverage from hips to hem. Flatters all sizes and fits like a dream with V-neck, three-quarter sleeves and subtle high-low hemline.
