On Sunday, September 7th Nanette Lepore showed her Spring 2015 collection at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week.
For Spring 2015, Nanette “wanted to see what it would look like to juxtapose early 60’s California free-spiritedness with the elegance and bodylines of the South of France at the same moment in time.”
Key VIP guests included: Actresses Alysia Reiner, Madeline Brewer and Vicky Jeudy as seen in ‘Orange is the New Black,’ Sarita Choudhury as seen in “Homeland,” Kat McNamara as seen on the Disney Channel, Sami Gayle as seen in ‘Vampire Academy,’ Audrey Gelman as seen in “Girls,” Peyton List as seen on the Disney Channel in “Jessie.”
Key bloggers in attendance included Kristina Bazan of ‘Kayture,’ Annabelle Fleur of ‘Viva Luxury,’ Margaret Zhang of ‘Shine by Three,’ Wendy Nguyen of ‘Wendy’s Lookbook,’ and Kelly Framel of ‘The Glamourai.’
In addition, Nanette’s daughter Violet walked the runway and closed the show for the first time this season! She was only a few months old when Nanette carried her in her arms at her first runway show. She’s appeared with her mom ever since – like a fashion week time tracker. A few images of Nanette and Violet’s life together on the runway are included in the link below and below please find a few quotes about Violet’s first walk.
“Everyone’s watched Violet grow up on the runway. She’s matured into an incredible and beautiful young woman. I can’t even tell you how proud I am to have her close my show this season! I didn’t breath the whole time she walked the runway.” – Nanette Lepore
