Fashion Week New Orleans and the W Hotel took a dip on Sunday with a poolside fashion show that proved at least one thing: New Orleans can pull of a cool attitude even in the June heat.
The show – featuring designs from Jolie & Elizabeth, Hemline boutique and Swim N Sport - was the first of a series of fashion presentations held waterside on the hotel’s rooftop. Times-Picayune photographer Steven Forster was there capturing the scene. Click through his photo gallery, at left, for a few looks that caught his eye.
Looking ahead, the next shows in the series will be July 1, with looks by Leah Bauer, Michele Marcombe and Vernon boutique. On Aug. 5, designers Kano Branon, Alicia Zenobia and Elise Doran will be in the spotlight. The shows are free, but the crowds are fierce. Click here for more details.
