Elda de la Rosa taking her bows. I was proud to be her featured model for her Fall/Winter 2010 collection which was shown this week.

Chicago designer Elda de la Rosa hosted her Fall/Winter "Ooh-La-La" fashion show in the historic landmark  Edgewater Beach Apartments, home of her atelier, and it was an SRO crowd. 

The show, produced by Tracey Tarantino from Zzaz Productions, showcased a collection which embraced Parisian fashion classics for today's modern woman.  It featured rich wool fabrics, natural fur embellishments, interesting jacket shape and luxury silks combined with classic satins and taffetas.  She also introduced her lower priced "El" line for professional women on the go. 

It was a crowd filled with fans, friends and press and she thrilled them all with her luxurious gowns, dresses and jackets.  I am one of her biggest fans and was honored to be her featured model for the show.  The outfits were embellished with unique Paoo Jewelry.   Long may you reign Elda!  (, (Additional pics by Steve Starr and Mark Rashid.)
