EVENT RECAP: Dress For Dinner with Nanette Lepore

Sunday, April 06, 2014

The 3rd event I attended last Wednesday was Recipe For Success Foundation's Dress For Dinner event with Nanette Lepore.  The designer and her team arrived in Houston for the first time for this event.  The premise of Dress for Dinner is for guests to pay to attend the Fashion Show and then have dinner with the Designer after the show to help raise money for the Foundation.  Guests arrived around 6:30 and were treated to yummy appetizers and refreshing cocktails.  Around 7:15 the show started. Nanette's Spring 2014 collection is soooo lovely! I love all the lace, crochet and the silhouettes.  Classic cuts and fun, flirty looks for Spring.  Check out the ooks from the Fashion Show below. Return tomorrow to read my interview with Nanette Lepore after an intimate lunch with the designer at Neiman Marcus's Mariposa restaurant.
