Imagine walking into a room with the sounds of Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra and other Big Band artists in the background, sassy tall models standing and sitting as mannequins on fancy chairs, servers walking around with gold trays topped with champagne glasses of Veuve Clicquot, heart shaped cookies with A+O initials, mini cupcakes sprinkled with toppings, and martinis galore. Now this is just a glimpse into what Stacey Bendet of Alice + Olivia had to offer on the night of her presentation for their Fall 2011 collection.
Held at The Plaza Hotel in the Central Park area of New York, Alice + Olivia over-delivered on their presentation of their resemblance of “Boardwalk Empire” style meets modern day glam chick. Fur stoles, brushed gold lame, rich cranberry tweed jackets, classic wool, brocades and fabolous tweeds and to top it all off, gorgeous sequins filled the room with style. It was beyond my imagination. I felt like I was in Harlem Nights or some fancy show in the 1920’s. Celebrities such as Vanessa Hudgens, Brittany Snow, Andre Harrell from Def Jam, Tika Sumpter and Kelly Rutherford from Gossip Girl was in attendance and other big fashionistas, stylist and bloggers were there to enjoy this wonderful night. My favorite part of the 2 hour presentation was the Burlesque dancer wearing Alice + Olivia and the red lips all throughout the room. It was simply marvelous. 😀
Check out these beautiful designs! (Photos taken by moi)
