The Lafayette 148 NY's  Fall 2011 Line a Hit at Saks 5th Ave

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.

Art Fusion gives lift to Atlanta fashion scene

Art Fusion gives lift to Atlanta fashion scene

Well-footed as a music mecca and profiled even as the “hip-hop capital,” Atlanta’s art and fashion scenes by comparison have had to play a game of “catch-up” with other major cities.

On Fri. Aug 5, Atlanta’s stride towards becoming a more recognized fashion city took one step forward with the debut of “Art Fusion.

Created by celebrity photographer Drexina Nelson, the first time endeavor joined fashion, music and art along with live photography.

“The vision of Art Fusion was created from the concept of bridging the gaps between various mediums of art,” said event publicist April Love.  “Drexina Nelson Photography teamed up with lifestyle publication Uptown Magazine and Remy Marin V Cognac to produce a night of fashion, music and art.”

Fashion filled the air in Whiskey Blue at the W in Buckhead Tuesday evening. The eyes of the town were on eight up and coming designers who were given the opportunity to showcase their Vitaminwater inspired pieces to a local style panel built up of Jessica Dauler of Jessica Shops, David Goodrowe Associate Dean of the School of Fashion at SCAD, and Robanne Schulman of Plaid Monkey.

Buzz, anticipation, and Atlanta’s fashion elite crowded around the white platform runway to see whose design, interpretation, and creativity would outshine amongst the rest.
