Ladies, there are some designers who just exude elegance and chic, the ones who have clothes that are meant to step from boardrooms to town cars and the hottest spots on earth. When one gets an invitation to celebrate the e-commerce launch of said designer’s works of fashion art at their new boutique in New York City, it’s considered a honor and a command performance. Which is exactly what happened to me with one such designer’s launch of his online boutique – ladies, I’m talking about the amazing Elie Tahari.
A lucky group of us ladies were invited by the designer himself and ELLE’s genius Creative Director to celebrate the launch of the new Elie Tahari online boutique and to style ourselves in the luxurious creations that you’ll see online. Fueled with white wine and lovely skinny cocktails (we are in fashion, after all,) the group of us descended upon the clothes with the zeal that I hope you’ll share when you take a look at what awaits you. Luxurious furs, impeccably-crafted leathers, wool separates, gorgeous silk dresses – ladies, looking good for life is an essential and items from this collection are ESSENTIAL to a well-dressed wardrobe.
So, in honor of the launch, they allowed us to style a wardrobe look and we got to pose in the window of his West Broadway store in Soho as the mannequins for the evening. My look (styled by me and me alone, thank you) is comprised of his Selma Blouse, Marjorie Pant (which he was nice enough to gift me – thank you, Mr. Tahari!), a Dakota Clutch and a fur jacket that can only be described at the Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of. As soon as I’m able, I will go back for it.
Ladies, fall is officially here and we need to look our absolute best. Take it from me after trying these beautiful wares – the Tahari Fall 2011 collection is not to be missed.
