Guests arrive by boat

Oscar by the Lake: Saks Fifth Avenue and the League to Save Lake Tahoe held a lakeside fashion show and lunch featuring Oscar de la Renta’s resort 2011 collection, on August 7, 2010. Some 600 guests joined event chairs Barbara Brown, Mara Fritz and Edith Tobin on the lawn at the Fritz family estate at Lake Tahoe for the fundraiser that benefited the League to Save the Lake. The fashion show on Lake Tahoe tradition has evolved over 41 years; it started when Bill Blass showed his collection to a few loyal clients and friends at the lake in 1969.
