Masquerade Corset Ball
Step into a world of magic and whimsy…
Don your mask and escape reality for an unforgettable evening of intrigue and splendour at the Lace Embrace Masquerade Corset Ball! On Friday, February 14th, 2020, we invite you to celebrate Valentine’s Day with us at Vancouver’s historic Heritage Hall.
Join us in your finest masked and corsetted inspired costumes and enter a Venetian carnivale adorned in glamorous mystery. Sip a cocktail or two, dance and socialize in your most elegant attire, splurge on some deluxe items in our silent auction, and enjoy a fashion show featuring the latest Lace Embrace Atelier creations. Observe a demonstration of the sultry tango and learn to dance this romantic duet. Compete to be in the costume parade of the best dressed and vote for your favourite.
This is our pinnacle fundraising event for the Antique Corset Museum, which is now the world’s largest privately owned collection of its kind! With pieces dating from the 18th century up until 1970, this unique museum will soon be open to the public, and our goal is to raise money for the preservation of these priceless corsets. Our collection has been on loan to prestigious museums in the Louvre Palace, Paris, New York and many other esteemed locations; now it will have a permanent exhibit space in our Atelier for your viewing pleasure.
General admission tickets include an elegant evening with a personalized introduction by our butler, a commemorative photo, fashion show, cash bar, silent auction, raffle, tango dancing lesson, plus a chance to win our best-dressed costume prize. We will also provide you with a complimentary ticket to the Antique Corset Museum.
For an extra special evening, indulge in our VIP package which includes all of the luxuries above, plus a decadent Valentine’s Day cheese and dessert bar with reserved round table seating, as well as early entry to the event. Sit down with friends and loved ones, and enjoy the sweet and savoury treats we have to offer! Enjoy a complimentary drink with early access to the bar while listening to a live piano serenade. A gift bag of treasures awaits you at your table, in addition to a custom boutonnière corsage to embellish your ensemble. We will also provide you with a complimentary ticket for a curator guided tour of the Antique Corset Museum.
Early bird ticket pricing is in effect and we have limited VIP tickets available, so please buy your tickets early to avoid disappointment. We look forward to seeing you at the ball!
