Varela + Brooks to Participate in NOLA Fashion Week
Dallas-based women’s contemporary apparel line recognized as one of six fashion collections to be featured with label-exclusive runway show during NOLA Fashion Week.
“It is a huge honor to be recognized by the New Orleans fashion industry,” says Isabel, a Louisiana native. “We are proud to be included in its wealth of fashion talent and to promote its stunning fashion scene.”
Launched earlier this year by The New Orleans Fashion Council, NOLA Fashion Week celebrates designers based or born in the South with a week of parties, six label-exclusive runway shows, fashion presentations, educational workshops and a fashion market. The first fashion week resulted in 81 published articles in 45 publications from New Orleans to New York City to London in addition to new store orders for designers and two models being accepted by modeling agencies. The bi-annual fashion events promote Fall/Winter collections in the Spring and vice versa.
When asked to describe their yet-to-be-released Spring/Summer collection, Ashlee is good at keeping secrets. “We are still making final changes on the designs and don’t want to reveal anything quite yet. However, you can still expect my preference for very feminine, flowy garments and Isabel’s tailored sensibility. It is our trademark.”
