The first week of spring brought temperatures in the 80’s to the Las Vegas area as well as a sizzling fashion presentation and runway show courtesy of KAUFMANFRANCO designers. Held at Neiman Marcus inside the newly opened Vintner Grill Strip restaurant the event was co-hosted by Madeleine Andress, Joele Corrigan and Wendy Plaster to raise funds for Nevada Ballet Theater.
The design team of KAUFMANFRANCO featured their high-end haute collection for the season with Franco himself hosting the runway show. Delighting the crowd, models walked the runway showcasing stunningly sexy, yet elegantly simple gowns, sequined dresses, luscious knitwear and sumptuous belted jackets in black, graphite and rich earth tones. Fabrics ranged from the lightest of leather to the most delicate webbed mohair.
KAUFMANFRANCO designs have been gracing the red carpet for years with celebrities the likes of Halle Berry, Christina Aguillera and Taylor Swift who stole the show wearing a navy blue gown by KAUFMANFRANCO at the 2010 Grammy Awards.
Nevada Ballet Theatre is the largest professional ballet company and dance academy in the state and will be the resident company of the new world-class Smith Center for the Performing Arts when it is completed in 2012. For more information about NBT please visit the web at www.nevadaballet.org.
