Sponsorship opportunities


Join us for an evening of sartorial swagger where guests are encouraged to flex their individual creativity in a salute to personal style. Luxe Affair is a cocktail celebration of creativity, personality and contemporary fashion design, benefiting the educational programs of Oklahoma Contemporary. Mix, mingle and pose with designers, influencers and art enthusiasts while enjoying an evening packed with performances and dancing.

Start the evening off with live DJ sets from KORA WAVES in the Te Ata Theater and DJ Yuchiboy on the North Lawn, accompanied by delicious passed and tabled hors d'oeuvres and an open bar. Local artist Jenny Elton will be sketching fashionable attendees with an opportunity to walk home with your iconic outfit memorialized forever, and the University of Oklahoma School of Dance will showcase two performances! Local band TWIGGS is set to perform a lively show, a perfect preface into the Late Night vibe for the remainder of the evening.

Luxe Affair is a celebration of art, fashion and the intersection of the two. This is the opportunity to showcase your show-stopping attire — dress to impress! Whether you are stepping off the runway or adding an exciting accent to a timeless classic, we are excited to see what you create!
