Spotlight: American Designers for the Red Carpet

It’s that time of year that everyone who cares about famous people wearing fancy dresses dreams about.  It’s award season!!! From The Golden Globes to The Academy Awards Los Angeles will be draped, swathed and adorned in high glamour.

Starlets showcasing daring necklines, showing side cleavage and making the occasional questionable fashion choices for the next few months will dominate your social media, your basic cable and your casual conversations. With new award shows cropping up all the time in between the old established award shows there will be plenty to talk about  who looked great, who looked ridiculous and who has lost their mind. It’s going to be a blast!

At The Way We Wore we start to ramp up for the “season” in October.  By December, Doris Raymond has the racks packed (and for those of you familiar with us - you know I mean packed!) with red carpet options for the ingenue to the grand dame. Now, we L-O-V-E love fashion designers from every country but this  season we would like to suggest that for all your red carpet occasions -  WEAR AMERICAN!

Think of the 3 B’s of American high fashion - Geoffrey Beene, Bill Blass and Donald Brooks. We have them all. You can also find Halston, Galanos,Oscar de la Renta and so many more greats on the racks right now. Make it Versailles 1973 all over again! If you are not familiar with that historical reference, you need to be. GO USA!
