Don’t Miss the 2016 Seriously Seersucker Event

Robert Hicks

New York Times bestselling author Robert Hicks announced he will again be hosting Seriously Seersucker, an event that gives a nod to the truly Southern summer lifestyle, Saturday, August 27 on the lawn of O’More College of Design to benefit the Student Scholarship Fund.

In making the announcement, Hicks said, “Like New Orleans, where seersucker suits, cocktails and seersucker parties were all first invented, it’s an occasion to have fun, swank around in your seersucker and enjoy local music, food, cocktails and dance. It’s an appropriate farewell to the beloved seersucker summer as we rapidly approach the fall.”

Cool Café will provide a truly southern buffet dinner and guests will enjoy the music of Jimmy Church Band who once played for a reception in Memphis where Prince William and Prince Harry attended. The Jimmy Church Band traveled to perform in England in December  2014 for a wedding reception for James Murray Wells and Lottie Fry in which Prince Harry, Princess Beatrice and Princess Euginie were in attendance.

Seriously Seersucker will be held on the grounds of O’More College of Design located at 423 South Margin Street. The event starts at 6 p.m. and individual tickets to the event cost $150 per person and can be purchased online. 

This year’s Patron’s Party will be held Thursday, the week before Seriously Seersucker, August 18th from 6-8 pm at Labor In Vain (Robert Hcks’ home) in Franklin, TN.  Robert will host and we’ll have heavy hors d’ouevres, and an open bar. Tickets to the Patron’s Party are $500 per person. Purchase your tickets online.

O’More College of Design is a four-year, not-for-profit institution offering Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in Fashion Design, Fashion Merchandising, Graphic Design, Interactive Design and Interior Design. For more information visit
