Ladies Who Lunch: Stephen Burrows Fall 2012 w/ Carol Alt & Pat Cleveland!

I first became aware of fashion designer Stephen Burrows when I was a student at Parsons School of Design.  I was drawn to him as a designer for his innovative collections, his bold use of color and his incredible drapes.  However, the most remarkable thing about Stephen Burrows is how prolific he is. 

We spoke to Stephen Burrows about his Fall 2012 Collection!  We also had the extra bonus of speaking with Super Models Pat Cleveland and Carol Alt for their insight into the collection and learned about Ms. Alt’s new book Easy Sexy Raw: 130 Raw Food Recipes, Tools, and Tips to Make You Feel Gorgeous and Satisfied.

Graduating from the Fashion Institute of Technology in 1966, Stephen Burrows began making clothing for a New York boutique and when his designs were displayed in the windows, they literally stopped traffic.  With the orders pouring in, Mr. Burrows launched his first ready to wear collection for Bonwit Teller in 1969 and he rapidly stepped into the limelight.

In 1973, Stephen Burrows was chosen to represent the United States at a Versailles Fashion Show as part of a French American fashion collaboration that included notable designers from both countries including: Pierre Cardin, Givenchy Yves Saint Laurent, Bill Blass, Oscar de La Renta and Halston.

In a career that has spanned almost 5 decades, Stephen Burrows has consistently presented collections that are not only on target for the trends of the period, but are also timeless!  Stephen Burrows Fall 2012 Collection is no exception!
