Seered Suckers: Pols Laud Louisiana's Linen


The Pelican State is famed her cultural exports such as cuisine and music, but our contributions to the greater zeitgeist also include fashion. Seersucker, the native fabric of NOLA, is being celebrated this week through a series of Seersucker Days. There is some debate as to when the holiday falls, but in Washington D.C., Louisiana’s Senator Bill Cassidy spearheaded the celebrations on Thursday (6.09).


Seersucker Soiree

Ogden Annual Benefit Returns Friday



On Friday (4.15), the Ogden Museum is busting out some southern summer swagger with their 13th annual Sippin’ in Seersucker benefit. The sartorial soiree at the Shops at Canal Place (333 Canal St.) will feature live music, free food, open bars, and some outrageous sartorial stylings.


Prep Squad

Seersucker's History Revisited, plus Tips from Jolie & Elizabeth on What to Wear to the Ogden's Sippin' in Seersucker Event



NoDef's history of seersucker sewed together the evolution of the distinctly southern fabric before last year's Sippin’ in Seersucker night at The Shops at Canal Place. Before Friday night's event, NoDef talks with Jolie & Elizabeth’s co-owner Jolie Bensen about the evolution of women’s seersucker clothing and gets some tips on what to wear on Friday, May 10, from 6pm-9pm.  


The Seersucker Story

Summer Suit Originated in New Orleans



With summer licking its chops, the Ogden Museum gives us a reason to dig out the lightweight garb once again Friday night with its annual Sippin' in Seersucker event. Before we rediscover how airy dressing up can be, Brad Rhines takes the measure of the famed Southern suits New Orleans origins.


The Ogden Gets Sartorial With Sippin' in Seercucker


Horseracing season has completed and White Linen Night is still a couple of months away, but don't let the Southern finest catch too much dust yet. Tonight, the Ogden Museum of Art hosts Sippin in Seersucker at The Shops at Canal Place. Other than lightweight fashion and mint juleps, the event also features the musical stylings of the Preservation Hall Stars and, in order to test how accomodating those lightweight duds are for the body's many movements, DJ Soul Sister. Info about tickets and such are over at the Ogden's website.
