Oscar by the Lake 2016

Saks Fifth Avenue’s 47th annual fashion show at Lake Tahoe featured over 70 colorful looks from the Oscar de la Renta 2017 resort collection. “This collection is quintessential Oscar,” said Roopal Patel, Fashion Director for Saks Fifth Avenue. “He shines today.” Once again, Oscar de la Renta showed us what to wear. The runway filled with whimsical patterns, eye-catching colors, and feminine silhouettes ideal for special luncheons, garden parties, cocktails, formal events and the red carpet.

Oscar de la Renta’s daughter Eliza Bolen and her husband, company CEO Alex Bolen, welcomed some 640 guests to the event, a tradition for the company since 1995. The Schumacher family estate in Incline Village, Lake Tahoe, provided an idyllic setting and the lake a stunning blue backdrop. The event raised over $870,000 for the League to Save Lake Tahoe and its mission to Keep Tahoe Blue.
