Celebrating the 40th anniversary of its Candlelight Concert gala this year, Segerstrom Center for the Arts
Celebrating the 40th anniversary of its Candlelight Concert gala this year, Segerstrom Center for the Arts held a special pre-event Oct. 4 at South Coast Plaza for committee members and other VIP guests. Nordstrom hosted attendees for the luncheon catered by Creme de la Creme, in addition to presenting a preview of designer Zang Toi’s spring 2014 looks. Toi, who has attended a previous Candlelight Concert, is a patron of the arts—particularly dance—and showcased his Ballet Babe collection featuring high heels inspired by pointe shoes and graceful color palettes reminiscent of dancers’ costumes. Segerstrom Center for the Arts’ 2013 Candlelight Concert takes place Dec. 6 at Segerstrom Hall, featuring a special performance by The Beach Boys and paying tribute to past committee chairs. —A.H.
