To the sound of alluring opera music the designer opened the show with an elegant collection of black pantsuits accessorized with black and mahogany rabbit fur, silk and wool tweeds and taupe lamb suede twin sets. The majority of the pieces were heavy on black and taupe creating a dramatic yet sophisticated look with a hint of romantic mystique. The second half of the runway show earned the designer rousing applause from the audience as he sent out his models wearing glamorous black couture silk satin gowns, bronze lamé fortuny pleated gowns and black lamé fortuny pleated Venetian gowns that brought sunny Venice to snowy and cold New York City. The stunning show concluded with the Grand Finale look for which the renowned designer received a standing ovation: a male model in a black cotton velvet dinner suit and a Venetian feather mask walked the runway hand in hand with a model wearing a taupe silk gazar grand opera cape with hand-beaded black sequins outlining the Venetian skyline. Toi’s latest creations capture the beauty of Venice while paying homage to the sophisticated, glamorous and timeless beauty of the female form. Bravissimo!

    New York Fashion Week: Pamella Roland Fall/Winter 2015 Runway Show

    Februar 17th, 2015

    For her Fall/Winter 2015 collection Pamella Roland took her inspiration from a recent trip to Paris and Alicia Drake’s fashion novel “The Beautiful Fall”. The designer captured and visualized the seductive glamour of 1970’s Paris with a stunning show of elegant dresses and separates at Lincoln Center on Monday afternoon.

    Adding to the Parisian and seductive vibe of her latest creations, the models walked the runway in sexy Manolo Blahnik knee-highs, flowing dresses with thigh-high slits, voluminous and long messy hair accompanied by songs such as “Naughty Girl” by Beyoné. The extensive collection included an elegant mix of deep shades of burgundy, plum, olive and midnight navy and rich fabrics such as jacquard cloque tweed, silk chiffon and silk organza with beading and velvet sequins. The standout pieces of the collection were definitely the beautiful and feminine evening dresses that are Pamella Roland’s signature designs: olive silk satin chiffon gown with velvet sequins, gold metal sequin and fringe beaded dress, burgundy silk satin chiffon dress with fringe beading and spiral gunmetal beaded gown. My personal favorite was the black wool strapless jumpsuit with maco beaded bodice that completed the seductive and elegant twist of this collection. The show closed with a model strutting the runway wearing a gorgeous ivory lurex fils-coupe bridal gown with an ivory feather jacket and there was nothing left to say but “Paris – Je t’aime!”

    Pamella Roland, whose designs are all made in New York, launched her collection in 2002 and has since enjoyed great success with her brand Pamella Roland, which is sold at prestigious department stores and retailers in the US and abroad. With a degree in business management and her passion for fashion and commerce Pamella Roland oversees both the creative and business side of her label. She has become one of the leading American designers for evening wear and her creations are popular with A-list celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Eva Longoria, Halle Berry and Taylor Swift. Pamella’s highly anticipated and first ever bridal gown collection is set to debut in fall 2015.
