Simply Summer, Fashionably Fall 2011

Simply Summer... Fashionably Fall took place at Neiman Marcus NorthPark last Thursday.  Event Co-Chairs Kristi Bare, Maggie Cooke-Kipp, Nancy Gopez, Margaret Keliher and Cindy Stager hosted a fabulous evening that included cocktails, delicious bites from NM Cafe, music by DJ Jennifer Miller and DJ Paul Paredes, and an informal fashion show featuring designs by Lafayette 148 New York.

Designer Edward Wilkerson, Lafayette 148 New York attended the event and was just lovely, wandering around and introducing himself to all of the guests. He spent time with everyone chatting about his inspiration for the Fall collection and pontificating about the latest trends.  A portion of the proceeds went to benefit Turtle Creek Recovery Center.
