There was a rise in energy level at the scene right before the commencement of the Lela Rose Fall/Winter 2015 Ready-To-Wear show at New York Fashion Week. You can sense that not just by the amount of people but their own energy volume. As we got situated in our place and started to look around to fully grasp the atmosphere, our eyes landed to a person right across from us, who set the pace for the entire show, women boss, Jennifer Hyman [you can see her here], CEO and Co-Founder of Rent The Runway. You might be saying, ok, so what? We see woman everyday. Well, hold up now! If you have stuck around long enough on our site, you will know that we are supportive of our women tribe specially the entrepreneurs ones. It was at another event, we had the opportunity to hear the inspiring story of her business. Let's just say courage up and give your business idea a chance!
The show begin with a cinematic touch [see here] against a backdrop by Brazilian artist Valeska Soares'. The theme inspiration for the collection is definitely something up our alley! We decided to put our phone down and just enjoy the show--so much is lost trying to capture an image. As the dress models made their way down the runway, all we could picture was a movie scene about 'country', modern conservative dresses with gorgeous toppers and a Western wives club--something like Kentucky Derby. It also recalled our childhood memories trips between Arizona and Texas. Well, our imagination was not too far off. The Lela Rose Fall/Winter 2015 collection takes inspiration from the American West, per runway program which by the way came with these comfort delicious-sounding recipes[see here], Wyoming to be exact, a destination she frequents was the root of inspiration.
If you know any history of Wyoming aside being a frontier land, it is also known as the Equality State. It is the state women first got to vote and hold a public office position. The dresses were indeed exquisitely feminine in a mixture of Wyoming cultural elements of fringed knits and beaded motifs. Lela Rose blends in modernity with the use of a specially designed fil coupe faille, guipure lace and tweed. To our closure, we'll be pairing up the lilac feathered embellished long skirt with the lavender shortbread cookies recipe. Lela Rose, always, ensembles with a perfect balance of utility, feminine strength and elegance, just like the American woman is built. How's that for the right amount of delight?
