Best known as a former contestant on Project Runway and recent red carpet host and correspondent for TV Guide Network, celebrity fashion designer, Nick Verreos, recently launched his brand of bright, feminine and sophisticated dresses now being carried by Lord & Taylor stores.
“Inspired by the Amalfi Coast, the collection is filled with vivid, bright pops of color and graphic prints evoking the Italian Riviera,” said Nick. “Whether you are having a girl’s night out or even going on a job interview, these dresses are meant to give you an ego boost. I guarantee they’ll make you feel confident, stylish, a little glam and maybe even sexy!” Nick adds his famous draping techniques that flatter every shape into each design, allowing every woman to have her own personal "red carpet" moment.
What woman wouldn’t want to embody the style and vibe of a modern Mediterranean goddess this summer? Let’s talk about colors. Olive, salmon, lemon – so fresh you can imagine yourself dining al fresco on a steep cliff of the Italian landscape, toasting the night, limoncello in hand. Turquoise and aqua – they add a splash of the Tyrrhenian Sea to your warm weather plans. Prints like “impressionist” and “watercolor” will be the masterpieces of your closet this season, while the “sunburst” print recalls the beautiful hand-painted ceramics of a Sorrento market.Many enhanced with embellished waistbands and shoulder details, asymmetrical styles round out the collection, and give three-dimensional interest and sculptural detail to the line. It’s obvious that the strong, structured silhouettes and Body Con dresses are for women who are not afraid to take risks. Though Nick mentions wearability for job interviews, this fashionista thinks DC ladies might opt to save these beauties for going out (unless you’re looking for a job in the fashion industry).
