I am so excited for designer Lela Rose to be honored tonight for her career achievement in fashion design. Lela Rose’s aesthetic of adding whimsy to elegance through brilliant color and handcrafted details has brought a fresh point of view to modern American fashion. She was raised in Texas and went to school in Colorado where nature, its surrounding landscapes, and the sublime colors it offers have long been an inspiration. Today, Lela continues to draw from these early influences as she designs clothes for the modern sophisticated women that embody a spirit of effortless elegance. You can see Lela in person at FGI Dallas Night of Stars Fashion & Lifestyle Awards.
