Pamella Roland NYFW AW19
All hail the queen! Pamella Roland did no less than usual of stunning a very over capacitated showroom this season at New York Fashion week. The atmosphere slightly different and the air filled with celebration. The legacy of this label that officially showed for the first time fall of 2002 is still very much so here, relevant and making a mark on each person as they experience it. This was directly seen in the pieces on the runway. Stand out minis, to dramatic trains of feathers and everything in between.
You can imagine over 17 years the Pamella Rolland audience has somewhat changed. They have grown up some have even with time just gotten better. Front row Nicky Hilton and a host of celeb influencers equally fanning out for Roland. Also fellow queen front row none other than Vanessa Williams herself looked absolutely amazing seated beside Dan DeVos, Pamella’s charming husband. Pamella and Dan ignited an already ear piercing applause as they shared a kiss on her finale walk out. Friends gave a standing ovation and grabbed hugs as she walked by leaving Pamella rushing back waving yet still sending thanks that radiated through the audience.
It may sound all like hype but the fact remains this women’s wear line has stood the test of time by bringing the highest quality of fabric and craftsmanship into the market. We had a chance to preview the collection and activities back stage. As the staff were preparing assistants were steaming and one asked, “How many people does it take to steam a dress” to which I responded, “Depends if it is a dress or something that Pamella Roland created”. The larger than life creations may take you sometime to digest when looking through our gallery. We urge you to take your time to take it all in!
