Lela Rose is an always one of our go-to designers for shoots, be it the young romantic, Manhattan dreamer, or natural beauty. Her pieces make the best ladylike date outfits with a whimsical twist, leaving you feeling, in one word: pretty. This season’s collection the designs were a modernization of a vintage kimono, shown through structured folding and wrapped bodice cut-outs. There is such a beautiful lifestyle to the Lela Rose woman, and you know wherever she’s going, I want to go too…
Fashion can be a lot of things from edgy to extreme… but every now and then it can be the total essence of beautiful. Perhaps I’m drawn to Lela Rose because of our Texas roots but I’m also a fan for what she gives to women, the confidence to be lovely. I had to stop by her design studio to see what she had in store and talk about just what the inspiration was for Spring.
Last week designer Lela Rose showed her spring collection at New York fashion week and true to form it was lovely, classic, sophisticated and completely feminine. Every time I look at her pieces I imagine where the girl who wears it is going… champagne soirée, garden parties, lunch at the Ritz? Most likely.
