Fresh Air Affairs with Lela Rose
Lela Rose, a fashion and entertainment designer, will present a lecture on Fresh Air Affairs: Entertaining with Style in the Great Outdoors, based on her book by the same name. Widely regarded for her elegant aesthetic and fresh point of view, Rose continues to redefine a sophisticated, yet modern lifestyle with her expanded, designer ready-to-wear offering. Formally trained as a painter and sculptor prior to pursuing fashion design, Rose employs a brilliant use of color, rich fabrications, sculptural silhouettes, and handcrafted details. Her artistic background is evident in her work and adds unexpected dimension and breadth to each season’s collection. Her eponymous collection spans a complete range of modern designer dresses and separates from day to occasion – exuding casual luxury and refinement. She also has the Lela Rose Bridal collection with exquisitely designed bridal gowns in sculptural silhouettes and luxe, flattering fabrications, along with complementary accessories. Pearl by Lela Rose is a ready-to-wear clothing line that is fun, fabulous, and effortlessly stylish. The spirit of the Lela Rose brand is driven by the entrepreneurial designer and her passion for style, design, and décor. Rose believes ‘Nothing says chic like matching your drink to your dress’ and sees design as a seamless thread through everything she does, whether that’s sketching a new collection or planning a fabulous fete.
