So far february has been an eventful month and one full of surprises...from the weather to fashion. However, in honor of Black History Month, I want to honor a faboulous and yet very influential figure. ZELDA VALDES: FASHION & COSTUME DESIGNER
(first to originate play boy bunnies outfits and first african american women to own a boutique on coveted broadway street in NYC!)
In 1970, Zelda was approached by Arthur Mitchell to serve as the head costume designer for his then newly-established performance company, the Dance Theatre of Harlem. She spent 18 years with the dance company and retired at the age of 83. From dressing Hollywood darlings, Playboy Bunnies and ballerinas, Zelda's legacy is long and enduring -- a fact that she was certainly proud of. "I just had a God-given talent for making people beautiful,"Zelda said during a 1994 interview with The New York Times. Zelda Wynn Valdes died at the age of 96 in 2001.
What a night, what a night...It was awesome. Desiree by Design "soft launch" Walking Presentation @ Walt Frazier's Wine & Dine was phenomenal. Great crowd, great fun, great networking and don't forget Monday Night Football (Let's go Giants). But thanks to all of DbD supporters, friends and family that came out and to the amazing models of the night who was a part of the Desiree by Design experience.
If you've never been there before 485 10th Ave is definetly a place to go for privacy, fun, upscale, good food and great connects. But stayed tuned for Desiree by Design and be sure to catch her down the next runway of Paris or Milan...and even better your closet.

As we wind down to the last few weeks of summer, we think about what was out and what didn't make it...Unfortunately 2013 Summer was a bummer...fashion wise...but moving foward to Fall 2013..we have a lot to talk about. One of the hot new colors or trends ( I should say) for the fall is rouge maroon.
