Lela Rose Honored in Dallas

Lela Rose made her debut at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League Presentation Ball many moons ago, so it was no surprise when the league chose her to receive the inaugural Fashion Notes Designer Award.
“I remember teetering on the stage trying to do my bow with my nose to the floor, so I thought it would be nice to come back,” Rose said Monday at the fifth annual Fashion Notes luncheon at the Fairmont Dallas hotel.
The prize recognizes outstanding achievement in design, said DSO League president Lisa Loy Laughlin.
“Thank you for your strong and graceful example for all the women of the world, including our Dallas Symphony Orchestra debs,” Laughlin said.
Rose wore a pink coat trimmed with Mongolian lamb over a gray jumpsuit from her fall collection. But while some attendees also wore her designs, none appeared in the luncheon’s short runway show organized by Stanley Korshak. The house recently stopped selling to Korshak because they had so many points of distribution in Dallas, Rose explained. They include Rose’s flagship store at Highland Park Village as well as Neiman Marcus, Tootsies and Warren Barron bridal shop.
Rose capitalized on the visit with a lively party at her store Friday, which featured a

Lela Rose Resort 2018

Lela Rose found her charming resort inspiration in a Seventies Lynn Anderson song lyric, which she was game to recite during her outdoor presentation at Jefferson Market Garden on Wednesday afternoon: “I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden.” No pardon necessary, because she delivered a collection hinged on that flower, rendered in various sizes and varieties, in prints and embroideries. Tattoo-style embroidery, a new method for the brand, was prominent on a black cotton poplin shirtdress with fluted sleeves. Double collars, prevalent on several looks, were most interesting when adorned with lace or embroidery.
Other pretty details included pearls inset in the sleeves of a white poplin shirt and on an off-the-shoulder wool crepe top, and lace-up grosgrain details on the bodice of a dusty pink and moss brocade dress. If the cold-shoulder look of a camel dress felt played out, overall the collection delivered on the brand promise: pretty modernity.

Lela Rose Pre-Fall 2017

With the wildflower as her muse, Lela Rose’s whimsical pre-fall collection centered around vibrant florals. Feminine silhouettes defined the lineup — ladylike A-line dresses, plunging V-neck gowns for evening and bell-sleeved blouses, peplum tops and full skirts for day — all rendered in punchy hues of yellow, fuchsia and royal blue. Rose loves to play with surface texture, adding dimension to her silk faille, jacquard and fil coupé looks with fuzzy pom-poms, woven silk fringe and 3-D appliqués. Most unexpected: A collared shirtdress rendered in colorful botanical guipure lace embroidery with a voluminous black tulle skirt for a chic statement both bold and demure.
Elsewhere, a few colorful dresses in floral-printed cotton voile felt airy, effortless and smart for the transitional season. Paired with Rose’s sheer, floral-embroidered socks, the looks took on a playful sophistication.

Lela Rose Takes Her Dresses Online

Lela Rose will roll out a new Web site on Sept. 1, offering up e-commerce for the first time.
The designer credited consistent growth and the expansion into additional categories — from shoes to handbags — as to why she’s using her site to build her business. Most of her collection will be available on lelarose.com, including Web exclusives such as a white-striped fringe dress — it’s offered in mint at other retailers — as well as clutches in exclusive colors and silhouettes.
“It can potentially be our biggest door,” Rose said of the site, which is editorial heavy with an emphasis on entertaining.
The brand is already sold in about 150 doors worldwide, with leading e-commerce wholesale accounts including neimanmarcus.com, bergdorfgoodman.com and Net-a-porter.com.
