Saks Fifth Avenue presented the Oscar de la Renta resort 2017 collection on Saturday, August 6, 2016 at a private residence in Incline Village to benefit the League to Save Lake Tahoe. It was a beautiful fundraiser which raised much-needed funds for the league’s preservation work of the lake.

In addition to a runway show featuring Oscar de la Renta’s resort 2017 collection, the event featured a raffle, silent auction, and exciting live auction. Some of the bids reached upwards of $60,000. It is always exciting to see people open their pocketbooks, and have fun doing so, for the good of a charity organization. Loved it!

After the runway show, guests were able to go backstage for a trunk show where they could pre-order their favorite pieces through Saks Fifth Avenue from Oscar de la Renta’s resort 2017 collection.

Oscar de la Renta’s resort 2017 collection featured bright pink, polka dots (I am in love with the pants featured above!), art deco influences, metallic fabrics, tassel earrings, and subtle embellishments. I loved everything on the runway!

I attended the event with my Mom, her husband, and my lovely 12-year-old daughter. It was the first time my daughter had attended a grown-up fundraiser, and she had fun! I was so proud of her; she behaving like a lovely young lady throughout the event. I cannot believe how grown up she is getting!

Oscar de la Renta resort 2017 will be available for purchase in late 2016 when the resort collections hit store shelves. You can view and shop his current collection online here.
