Oh, what a night at Simply Summer, Fabulously Fall!

The Simply SummerFabulously Fall event benefiting Turtle Creek Recovery Center was held Wednesday night on Level Three of Neiman Marcus at NorthPark Center.  I had exclusive access to live tweet the event and take photos of the fabulous fashions.

The evening began with an exclusive Patron Reception with Lafayette 148 New York designer Edward Wilkerson. It was a pleasure for guests to meet the designer while browsing racks of his beautiful clothes.

The Lafayette 148 New York fall collection is rich in color with beautiful leather and fur.

As the event got underway, guests were invited to play casino style games, nibble bites from NM Cafe, visit the Le Metier de Beaute lash bar and sip signature VeeV cocktails, Skinny Mojito or Skinny Mint Lemonade, as well as bubbly and other spirits.

DJ Jennifer Miller and DJ Paul Paredes really had the party going with great music selections that ran the gamut from Stevie Wonder to Rod Stewart.  The only thing missing from this event was a dance floor!

Guests left the event with a lovely gift bag with Le Métier de Beauté cosmetics, a Neiman Marcus key fob, information on the programs and services of Turtle Creek Recovery Center and note cards depicting delightful renderings of Lafayette 148 New York designs. (like the one above)
