An Afternoon of Spring Fashion and Escada Luxury

Escada has become a legend over time in the Fashion Industry and is the ultimate essence and elegance of true German Design. Their precision, attention to detail, immaculate drape, and construction brings to life their superb technique.

Daniel Wingate, Creative Designer of Escada, honored Maggie B and I with his dynamic presence at Neiman Marcus Bellevue on Saturday. Daniel premiered the Escada Spring and Resort Collection featuring new trends on the runway while we sipped on bubbly champagne and schmoozed with our great pal and PR Director of Neiman Marcus, Rachel Roberts.

This season’s trends are inspired by the story of nature. The Resort collection features pieces with stunning computer generated graphics based on the idea of air, lightness, and the sky. Then as we move into the Summer Collection, the inspiration comes back down to the earth with subdued color palates and lots of textured fabrics. We loved the Marlene Dietrich pant; the slouch and drape that depict Escada. The collection always appears with a new treatment that tempts us with that fresh look that is their subtle way of stating we are in trend and with great heritage loved the dresses with drape swung over the shoulder sculpts the body to  accentuate all the right curves.


With Daniel Wingate, we discussed the sense of how Escada has positioned themselves over the years and has maintained the loyalty of their clientele through the love of the collection. The Escada Woman is confident in her taste and style. She is defined as stately and loves the pure sense of design! The name Escada is infamous for beautiful clothes that offer an exclusive way to enter the room… you hear the whispers as she passes- Is she wearing Escada! Your reputation in fashion is based on that moment of appearance.


Fashionably yours,

Andrea and Maggie B
