Begining with a moment of darkness and John Lennon’s “Imagine” in the background, the Lela Rose Show started by remembering the 9/11 Tragedy that befell New York 10 years ago that very day and time. But with Front Row, Susan Sarandon in attendance and the energetic and positive happy spirit of Lela Rose the first model burst into the light. Her show this year was inspired by the Neon Graveyard: discarded neon signs of Las Vegas and Coney Island that tell a story with a decidedly less garish viewpoint. But there was plenty of color left, however, as seen in the Electric Orange zip front coat and Shattered Glass Carnival Print sheath dress. Elements of fringe, mosaics, washed out and bleached gauzes were paried with sild, embroidery and floral applique to give texture and designer detail. The styles of the collection rang fairly true to the Lela Rose Kool-aid; wearable, ladylike and extremely versatile. There were even a few ball gowns and cocktail dresses, just in case Coney Island still has room on its dance card.
