A night of Opulence at Lorena Sarbu Fall 2011 Collection
Eveningwear designer Lorena Sarbu’s presentation party on Wednesday night combined style and opulence to dazzling effect. The fall 2011 couture collection is rich in color and texture: aubergine tulle, emerald sequins, slate blue metallics. This being couture, of course, all that luxury doesn’t come cheap. Dresses start at $2,000, so it’s a little hard to picture myself buying one. Yet I had fantasies of wearing one at a very elegant New Year’s Eve party.
I asked the designer about the possibility of designing a secondary, more affordable line, and, while it seems to be something she’s thought about, it’s not immediately in the works. In the meantime, those with means can check out selected Sarbu designs at Saks and Bergdorf Goodman. Those with major means can fly to Milwaukee or Beverly Hills to browse the whole collection in the boutiques.
As for me, I don’t know if it was the champagne, or the dresses, but I definitely left the party feeling a little more glamorous myself.
