avant garden

last saturday, i had the privilege of attending yet another lore emelio fashion show, this time at the bechtler museum of modern art. this was the third of lore's shows that i've been able to witness and i can always count on a creative collection, lots of stylish charlotteans, well-selected prosecco and an organized, well-executed event. last fall's show, the hunt, has definitely been my favorite but unfortunately my camera died before the runway began, so there was no blog post about that one. emelio's work is always very unique and unexpected and i also appreciate that it has a little bit of southern influence.

this spring's show, avant garden, featured a lot of dresses, tiny hats, bright colors, and bare backs. with the exception of a few pieces, i can't say that i loved this collection or venue as much as the others, but it's always fun to see what emelio is designing. i'm always thrilled to be a part of this event and am already anticipating the fall show.
my photos leave a lot to be desired, but here are a few i grabbed during the show. for more, check out the observer's great shots (please ignore the awful one where i look like an un-showered giant), wsoc's video, and the observer's article.

this was one of the dresses i loved, although you can't see it too well in the photo.

the southern gentleman look.

this was my favorite favorite dress. it was gorgeous.

my date johanna and i. it would probably be wise to not wear five inch heels when i invite my most petite friend to an event. 

proof that i did not look as disgusting as the observer picture. 

the bechtler is one of my favorite uptown charlotte buildings. gorgeous.
