The Winter Design Show: Flaunting the First Coast

The Winter Design Show: Flaunting the First Coast reimagines the beloved Art & Antiques Show by presenting the work of top designers and artists, as well as current trends in home decor. Our 45th Show is unique in that we are celebrating the beauty and diversity of the place we call home by featuring neighborhoods, designers, artists, and shops from along our First Coast. Returning to the show are timeless favorites such as the black-tie gala, wares featured by local vendors, lectures by renowned designers, and the finest in antiques dealers. Flaunting the First Coast will not only highlight the richness of Northeast Florida but also engage and honor sponsors who are so vital to our community and to Wolfson Children’s Hospital. The Winter Design Show will conclude with the cherished tradition of the Children’s Fashion Show starring past and current patients from Wolfson.

The path will be rich, with beautiful vignettes curated by a number of local designers, artists, and home décor boutiques. Custom cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, presented by local restaurants, will add to the flavor of each scene.

Focused on rediscovering the First Coast’s hometowns and local communities, while encouraging sustainability, a variety of lecturers will speak, sharing the current trends and design sensibilities of these distinct neighborhoods. Local vendors will provide a myriad of opportunities to purchase unique wares to enhance the appeal of our homes and businesses.

An interactive Hospital Experience will educate those in attendance about where the funds the Women’s Board raises go, with a focus on the new funding target, the new tower, and all of the amazing technology being integrated into the NICU.
