Theme and Dress
This year’s theme is ADAGE.
What is an adage? It’s a proverb or short statement expressing a general truth. As advertisers, we tell stories and create culture. At this year’s Richmond Show, we’re paying homage to the golden age of advertising: the good, the bad—and the silly.
Every year at the Richmond Show we dress to the theme. This year, think kitschy, retro, and vintage styles echoing the 1950s - 1970s. While it's not a requirement, we’d love to see you gussied up in your best classic looks. Here’s some outfit suggestions:
- Mod shift dresses that channel your inner Twiggy
- Is that Don Draper? Nope, it’s you in your best retro suit
- Shirtwaist dresses that’ll make you feel like an extra in Pleasantville
- Three-piece suits, checkered blazers, and super shiny oxford shoes
