NYC Designer Hilton Hollis Brings His Trunk Show to Tootsies Oct. 11-13

By Nancy Staab

The Natchez-born but NYC-trained fashion designer, Hilton Hollis, brings his polished fall collection to Atlanta. Think: sleek shift dresses, sophisticated pencil skirts, and a dash of fur, lace, leather and metallics to take these frocks from work to cocktail with ease. And he’s even caught the eye of glossy national fashion publications like WWD!

Young fashion designer Hilton Hollis represents the best of both worlds. The Natchez, Mississippi-born designer has all the charm and polish of his native South---and so do his designs. Meanwhile, training at The Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC gave Hollis both sophistication and a bit of edge.

Post-school, Hollis trained with famed designers Dana Buchman, John Bartlett and Calvin Klein, so he knows just how to cut a sharp dress, jacket or suit and then embellish it with just a dash of metallics, fur, sexy cut-outs, leather or lace.  It is just this fusion of ladylike polish and sexy, modern edge that allows Hollis’ frocks to transition with ease from the corporate world to a cocktail. His luxe fall collection is no exception and on Thurs. Oct. 11-Sat. Oct. 13 you can see his latest designs and meet the well-mannered designer in person at Tootsies boutique at Shops Around Lenox. If you are lucky he may even bring a few pieces from his color-drenched spring 2013 collection as well.

 

Tootsies is located at Shops Around Lenox at 3400 Around Lenox Drive.  404.842.9990 or  tootsies.com/atlanta  For more info on Hilton Hollis visit: www.hiltonhollis.com
