As the season nears an end, we’re thrilled to see the recent rise in altruistic events for philanthropic causes, many benefitting women. March patrons made splendid style statements and April galas were ablaze with eye-catching ensembles. Our lenses are always focused on all the fashion that’s fit to print, so keep the chic coming, Sarasota!

Photography by Cliff Roles: If you love Cliff Roles’ photography as much as we do, be sure to get his newly released book, Walkabout Europe, full of gorgeous travel photos! Contact him at cliffroles@aol.com
