One such designer that is taking fashion lovers on this journey through time is Pamella Roland. During her New York Fashion Week show, Plunging necklines, wide-leg jumpsuits, and intricate embellishments strolled down the runways. The essence of the 70’s with a modern twist was very much apparent throughout the collection.
Recently I had the opportunity to sit down with the designer during her visit to Chicago where I received a first-hand preview of many of the looks fresh off the runway. We discussed her couture line as well as her affordable Pamella Collection while she guided me through many of the looks throughout the collection.
Having watched her shows from the cozy confines of my home, I was delighted to have the opportunity to gain firsthand access to a collection that I had been lusting over. With a name quite well known on the red carpet, I wanted to find out what has everyone flocking to Pamella Roland.
Whether you are looking at a Pamella Roland gown from the runway or sifting through clothing in the store; one thing that is incredibly clear is the presence of the finest quality of fabrics. The fabrics exude both a luxurious and durable quality without sacrificing the elegance. Even gowns with embellishments can feel comforting and non-constricting for the garment wearer. While fans of the brand can always expect quality, they can also look for a slight element of surprise within each garment. What may be considered a conservative gown may feature a plunging neckline and what may look like a regular jumpsuit features a jeweled backless design.
With many of the gowns featuring an array of embellishments, there is no concern of any jewels, stones or trinkets falling off of the garment. This is a fashion faux pas that Pamella is all too familiar with as she once left a trail of feathers behind her from a very well-known designer gown. Rest assured, you can be certain that Pamella was not going to let that happen with any of her designs.
While buyers can expect to make a statement in a Pamella Roland design, she designs with the intent of wearability. Instead of trying to make a splash in the fashion industry with complex designs like wearable sleeping bags of Comme des Garcons, Pamella focuses on creating designs with the wearer in mind. The wearer of Pamella Roland is simply a busy woman on the go that doesn’t have time to put on an overly complicated garment.
While many love the sophistication of the garments, a popular fixture throughout the collection, is the ability of many of the looks to transition from day-to-night. In order to facilitate this transition, Pamella says that her favorite features of the collection were overcoats that accompany a cocktail dress.
While a young brand just under 20 years old, Pamella Roland has shown that by producing quality, luxurious and innovative designs; this fashion house will certainly stand the test of time. I’m certainly looking forward to what this designer has up her sleeve in the next seasons.
