This design of a shoe is just one of the unique creations the show will offer.

The Greenwich Dahlia Society’s 7th Annual Dahlia Show, sponsored by the Garden Education Center of Greenwich, promises the visitor a sea of blooms that range from tiny buttons to huge stems in an array of stunning colors.

All dahlias will be sold on the final day of the show, giving the public a rare opportunity to own prize-winning blooms.

The show will be held Saturday, Sept. 20, from 1 to 4 and Sunday, Sept. 21, from 10  to 3. The event is open to the public at no cost. Visitors may submit their own dahlias for judging on both days.

Those interested in showing their blooms can find the complete program schedule on the Garden Education Center’s website. Novices are encouraged to participate. Easy to grow and deer resistant, dahlias offer both experienced and novice gardeners a wonderful way to enhance flowerbeds with blooms that last well into the fall.

Jane Gershon Weitzman, author of Art & Sole, will be signing books at the Dahlia Show at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 20. Ms. Weitzman’s book features a selection of more than 150 fantasy art shoes from the Stuart Weitzman collection. When Stuart Weitzman opened its first boutique on Madison Avenue, its displays of specially commissioned fantasy shoes quickly drew crowds from all over the world.

The best of this carefully curated collection is on display in book form, where the imaginative creations are presented in vivid detail.

With its inventive and beautifully crafted footwear made with a vast range of materials — from watercolor paper to playing cards, from fresh flowers (dahlias, of course) to frosting — this stunning showcase where fashion and fantasy meet will thrill shoe and art lovers alike.
