When Neiman Marcus shows the Akris spring/summer 2015 ready to wear collection on a make shift runway at the Phoenix Art Museum, it’s nothing less than a prelude to a pARTy.  This year the luxury retailer showed the designer collection at the Phoenix Art Museum’s annual benefit gala, which was the first time a fashion show was presented at the event.

Guests were dressed to the nines for this black tie affair and didn’t let the rainy day weather curb their style.  Prior to the show guests mingled in the Andy Warhol exhibit, sipped champagne, and noshed on hors-d’oeuvres.  The fashion choices ranged from elegance (a floor length teal gown accessorised with a gorgeous Fendi baguette bag), to those who supported Warhol (Campbell’s Soup ties were in full force).

Although I cannot confirm what happened at the pARTy, as I’m a working girl not a high roller (tickets were a pretty penny), I can vouch for the fashion. Akris is a family run design house based out of Switzerland.  Currently two brothers Albert Kriemler, head of design, and Peter Kriemler, head of finances, are running the show.  Neiman Marcus pulled looks from Albert’s spring/summer 2015 ready to wear collection, which showcased a clean minimal color palette and design aesthetic.

It was a beautiful show enjoyed by all (to include the Governors muscly security guard), and hopefully a show of fashion will become a static affair to the Phoenix Art Museums pARTy each year.  In the meantime I’ll be supporting the look of Albert’s Akris spring/summer 2015 ready to wear collection by rocking visors, cutouts, and perforated fashion.
