Lane Bryant Hosts First Fashion Show in Collaboration with Isabel Toledo

NEW YORK, March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lane Bryant hosted their first ever designer runway show last night to showcase the retailer's collaboration with Isabel & Ruben Toledo. The show took place at the iconic Seagram Building, located in New York City. Editors from the nation's top publications were in attendance alongside bloggers and industry VIP to take part in the momentous occasion. The collection was designed based on an ideal held by Isabel, that when a person feels great in what they are wearing, they become unstoppable.

Portions of both the Spring & Fall collection were shown. Models walked the runway in sheath dresses and coats adorned in Isabel's signature patterns, tunics, and expertly draped cocktail dresses. Designs were presented in black, white, hues of gold and soft grey. Pieces were color blocked and complimented with hints of patterns displayed through the entire collection. The couture designer and tailor extraordinaire famously dressed First Lady Michelle Obama for the President's first inauguration. Her design for the First Lady was such a success, Isabel knew she had to integrate the coat and dress into this collection for Lane Bryant. Isabel Toledo says, "Dressing a Lane Bryant customer was not any different than dressing my own customers because I have women of all sizes that wear Isabel Toledo."

Isabel Toledo approaches the design process as a combination of engineering and poetry. She says, "All that experimentation, at one point you want to see it in a big way," adding, "to be able to apply everything I've learned to Lane Bryant is a dream." Isabel's spring collection for Lane Bryant is currently in stores and available to shop online. Price points range from $60.00 for her T-shirt design to $178.00 for a trench.
