Style is about taking fashion and making it your own. I reinvented a holiday strapless dress by layering a white silk blouse over it and tying it on the side with a rhinestone bracelet. The look caught the attention of the designer, Marie Holman Roa at the Lord & Taylor event last week. It made my day when the designer of 424 Fifth told me that she loved the way I styled the look. Marie is so down to earth and fun to be around; you would never guess how much she has shaped our closets over the years.
Maria reinvented Banana Republic to the store it is today in 1990s. After that Marie Holman Rao developed Victoria’s Secret wash-and-wear line of undergarments and loungewear aimed at college-age girls, now a $3-billion brand known to us all…Pink! My college closet was filled with pieces from Banana Republic and some from Pink as well. She is a visionary and has brought that vision to the exclusive line for Lord & Taylor called 424 Fifth (the address of the Lord & Taylor’s flagship in Manhattan).
