Mum’s the Word? I Can’t Keep a Secret! Visiting Smith College Botanic Garden’s Fall Chrysanthemum Show, 2018
Watch Out, Gucci: Evan’s Dream Chrysanthemum (Fukuske, Spider Class), in Pale Pink Couture at Smith College Botanic Garden.Â
We’ve all been invited to some obligatory formal event or other —black tie, couture gown, rsvp— only to send our regrets at first politely permissible moment. Don’t get me wrong. Parties are great fun, but sometimes it’s hard to beat your cozy pajamas. Well, don’t let the 2018 Fall Chrysanthemum Show at Smith College Botanical Garden be the soirÃ©eÂ you skip this year, because luckily, only the flowers are required to play dress to up —and boy have they ever! Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino, Gucci; yes, they’re all there and you get to play paparazzi. It’s a spectacular, end-of-season, horticultural ball —don’t miss it!
