Hello Loves! I hope your day has been progressing beautifully! Last Wednesday I posted a reminder for you to watch the PRONOVIAS inaugural 2014 Atelier collection in NYC. Held at St. James’ Church, the event was straight out of a wedding fairytale book with amazing decor, adorable flower girls, and guests watching from the pews. The show was hosted by supermodel Petra Nemcova who looked divine in an embellished blush toned mini dress from the Pronovias 2014 Cocktail collection. “It was a pleasure to work with Pronovias. I’m in love with the Atelier Pronovias collection, the designs are so elegant and I was very excited to have seen their first runway show in New York,” said the Czech model, television host, author, philanthropist and Chairwoman of the Happy Hearts Fund.
As you can see from these pics, PRONOVIAS Atelier is a romantic collection of ethereal gowns ranging from elaborate embellishments to sleek, polished styles. All are crafted amazing with details such as lace overlays and silk petals strewn with delicate adornments such as luminescent pearls and crystals.
My dear friend Elie Kent was totally impressed with the afterparty! Following the show’s conclusion, guests were driven to the PRONOVIAS flagship store for cocktails and bites! I LOVE a well-planned event! Chelsea Leyland played the sounds while guests like Kelly Bensimon, Marcus Stewart, and Elena Kurnosova enjoyed the fashionable atmosphere. Pronovias CEO Manuel Ehrensperger (pictured below) said, “We are really excited with this show in the fashion capital of NYC: the presentation of our amazing Atelier Pronovias collection is a key asset for us to support the US market, being one of our main business focuses.”

I'm a media strategist, fashion fan and whimsical event planner. For years, I've been "reporting" from fashion shows and fabulous events to my loved one out of pure joy. Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I'd sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, "I think you need a blog!" LOL! I've been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
