Atlanta’s chic set came out to support Dallas-born beauty and now NYC-based fashion design Lela Rose and her polished pieces during an informal fashion presentation by Rose.

Atlanta lovelies, many clad in Lela Rose’s femme frocks, enjoyed a light lunch of seared salmon nicoise, Domaine St. Michelle Blanc de Blanc and mocha mousse with fresh berries, while taking in the informal fashion show of Rose’s fall collection. Among the Rose lovers: Pagie Metcalfe, Ginny Brewer, Kathy Davis, Pam Kauffman, Angela Cochran, Nancy Rollins, Cynthia Hammond, Courtney Rhodes and Mary Johnson.
Best of Show:
We adored Rose’s painterly skirts and dresses with abstract print (perhaps it’s no accident considering Rose’s parent are major contemporary art collectors) and it turns out Rose herself was “inspired by the art work of Gerard Richter,” in her liberal use of silver metallic and bursts of bright color: reds, emerald greens and royal blues.
