Highly Anticipated and Celebrity Attendance expected: Vanessa Simmons Swim Line "Rose" by Vanessa Jean, set to debut during Mercedes Fashion Week Swim at the Raleigh Penthouse on July 22nd from 11pm - 12am. (By invitation only)
Most buzzed about show: Chloé, the luxury women’s ready-to-wear, accessories and lifestyle brand, to showcase its Spring 2013 collection on the runway for the first time in the United States. The collection of layered folk blouses, safari cotton cropped pants, military pocket georgette dungarees and lace inserted shirts feature vibrant colors of mineral shades accented with dusty tangerine neon and coral, fused with vintage white. This season I thought about the Chloé girl with a very bohemian spirit, although there is still a sharp modernity to the silhouette, I used a fuller volume which keeps it more feminine. There is a touch of the late seventies in the ‘New Romantic’ softness, but I love it blended with the sharpness from the 80s and tapered tailoring,” says Clare Waight Keller, Creative Director for Chloé.
Guests are invited to enjoy refreshments compliments of Corzo, Moët & Chandon, Peroni and Vita Coco, followed by an exclusive runway show featuring music by DJ Johnny the Boy. Makeup will be provided by Makeup by Aileen and hair styling by Privé.
