A Grimm Fairy Tale at Lela Rose Fall 2013

Cold yet sunny, with snow debris smashed to the curbside, Sunday morning started with a promise of light-hearted enchantment at the Lela Rose Fall 2013 show in the Studio at Lincoln Center.

The Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales told stories of romance, tragedy and secrets as the inspiration behind this season’s collection.  Fantasy juxtaposed with dark humor conjured up a magical, feminine apparition of wearable styles for fall.

My co-chair Chuck Steelman, decked out in bright red velvet skinny pants, looked impeccable as my partner in crime—and I wore a delicious red lace gown by honoree Nha Khanh. Our emcee for the evening Victoria Snee, endearingly proclaimed the evening as the “Chuck and Max Show.”

It’s No Secret, It’s Lela Rose

It’s hard to keep a secret, but for the FGI Dallas, Fashion & Lifestyle Awards ‘Night of Stars’ Gala that I am co-chairing with Chuck Steelman in November, there are so many exciting things to share—we had to let one secret out.

Usually, all the honorees are announced during the Announcement Party—this year the event will be held on October 3rd at the Hilton Anatole, so stay tuned for more details for this event.  In the meantime, FGI Dallas wanted to share the exciting news about the honoree for the 2012 Career Achievement in Fashion—Lela Rose!

In February, I witnessed the Fall 2012 collection elegantly glide down the runway at New York Fashion Week, read my blog post here: Calatrava Inspired.  So I am thrilled to announce that FGI Dallas will honor Lela Rose with this award.
