On Saturday August 13th, the Layfayette 148 Trunk Show revealed its fall 2011 line to many buyers, socialites, and press at the distinguished location of Saks 5th Avenue at Phipps Plaza. Upon arrival, guests in attendance were treated to delightful hors d'oeuvres and refreshments. The raspberry-lemonade cocktail, long-stem flutes of champagne and fine cheese served on mini triangle-shaped breads were only but a few of the items served. Guests were also able to receive an 18 page booklet, detailing the elegant, yet wearable, designs for the fall. Located in the back of the booklet, were actual pictures from the designer, Edward Wilkerson’s, trip to India—a trip that incited inspiration for all of his fall 2011 designs.
The show opened with light Indian/Bali style music and the audience was greeted by a splash of deep reds, gold, purples, and browns.
