Neiman Marcus Hosts New Oscar de la Renta Collections
for San Diego Opera Medallists
Every year Neiman Marcus in San Diego hosts a beautiful bevy of San Diego Opera Medallists. Medallists. are those who devotedly give extraordinary financial gifts to the Opera. As such, Neiman’s brings in the very handsome Boaz Mazor, the right hand man of designer Oscar de la Renta.
And with Boaz comes Oscar de la Renta’s newest ballroom to resort chic couture collections. And this year's collections feature Oscar's rich, luxe fabrics, perfect detailing, and that incredible wow factor.
Iris Strauss and Lynda Kerr
Among those enjoying the collections were San Diego Opera's leading patron, Iris Strauss, chic in Oscar de la Renta of course. More fashionably there were Karen Cohn in Oscar de la Renta, Valerie Cooper in Versace with the Versace "it" purse trimmed in chinchilla, Emma Zuckerman in a richly brocaded velvet coat ensemble by Etro, Lynda Kerr in Chanel with zippy back laced suede boots, Jennifer Greenfield in a simple sheath, and Sheryl White in a pretty Chanel suit.
Still more there were Lee Clark in Escada, Jeanne Jones, Alberta Feurzeig, Joan Bowes in a pretty brocade 2/3 coat, Brenda Marsh Rebello in a white trousered suit, Sally B. Thornton in perfect velvet brocade suit and fluffy scarf, and Joan Jacobs.
It's been a pivotal week for Joan. Not only has she just celebrated her birthday, (Happy Birthday Joan!), but Joan is also celebrating recovery from an injury a few months back. And she looks great!
Great too was the lunch and fashion show.
Fashions were modeled during the chic and light lunch of lobster ravioli and fish, and a fruit soufflé. After lunch and the fashion show, Boaz helped the ladies shop. And shop they did. After all, when you give so much to worthy causes like the San Diego Opera, it's fun to look fabulous too! And these gals do.
The San Diego Opera Gala is February 16th.
