INSPIRATION

The Original Black & White Ball

In 1966, the year Clare Hall was founded, Truman Capote hosted the “Party of the Century” in New York City’s Plaza Hotel. To celebrate Clare Hall’s 50th Anniversary, we will be recreating this spectacular event!

Take your style cues from Frank, Mia, Truman, and his ‘swans’!
