Designer Elda de la Rosa's Spring/Summer 2011 collection brought the house down recently at a cocktail reception and fashion show at the Allerton Hotel. The standing room only crowd cheered wildly at each exquisite design and, while Elda specializes in evening gowns and bridal wear, her cocktails dresses and daytime wear were big hits as well. Guest models included ABC 7's Diana Palomar, WCIU's Jeanne Sparrow and me. I was so honored to be included since I love Elda's designs and wear them often. The show was expertly produced by Tracey Tarantino from ZZAZZ Productions with beautiful jewelry provided by Sophia Forero. Congrats Elda! (Elda de la Rosa, 5555 N.
