Despite Tuesday night’s rain burst the debut of Escada‘s refreshed boutique in HP Village was a home run. While a drenched valet made sure the guests suffered nada a raindrop, the elegant interiors of the couture store were elegant and a perfect backdrop for some pretty stellar clothes.
Checking things out were guests of the Salvation Army Auxiliary, who know their fashions. Barbara Sypult was just back from Mexico and in a bright green Escada jacket. . . that she bought at the annual Salvation Army sale a couple of years ago. Over browsing through the rods of outfits was Joyce Fox who admitted that she was rather taken back by the very pleasing-on-the-eye price tags.
Escada store maven Melinda Rathke, sporting a new hairstyle from Frédéric Fekkai, admitted that prices were very favorable to clientele in celebration of the re-opening. In addition, 10% of sales was being turned over to the Salvation Army.
Salvation Army luncheon chairs Pam Busbee and Patti Flowers were delighted that only was the sun coming out just as the Escada doors opened, but plans for the 20th annal Fashion Show & Luncheon on Monday, May 2, at Brook Hollow Golf Club were right on schedule.
