Featuring this fall and winter’s fashions, Prêt–à–Porter Las Vegas, a new show concept and vision for the fashion industry, will take place Friday through Sunday, Nov. 13 – 15, in Las Vegas at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino Convention Center, 3700 W. Flamingo Road.
The brainchild of local Nevada business owner, Debbie Landry, “Prêt–à–Porter” (pronounced preta-por-tay) is a French phrase meaning, “ready to wear.” Landry, who serves as president and CEO of Redhead Enterprises and has a history in fashion, plans to host the event twice a year – once to highlight fall/winter fashions and once to show spring/summer clothing. While ready-to-wear fashion shows are nothing new, Landry’s show brings a new concept to the industry. Targeting the fashionista in everyone, the show will feature current fashions (rather than future fashions) that are available for purchase from local retailers and manufacturers at the time of the show. “This is a fashion show by the modern woman for the modern woman,” Landry said. “People from all stations of life – not just celebrities or the rich and wealthy – want to look fashionable. As fun as it is to see all of the amazing concepts walked at New York Fashion Week or Paris Fashion Week, most of us will never have access to those shows. Prêt–à–Porter Las Vegas will feature fashions we can actually buy and wear now at local retail and design stores.” Prêt–à–Porter Las Vegas will show fashions available for the modern woman this fall and winter, including where those fashions can be purchased at retail stores. In addition to runway events, Prêt–à–Porter will include a retail vendor fair and more.
