The only thing better than fashion in New York City? Fashion that's made in New York City. Yoanna House visits Nanette Lepore's Garment District atelier to see where the designer creates her feminine collections and heads to her new Madison Avenue boutique to try on some of her bright, bohemian-influenced styles.
The Nanette Lepore Firecracker Dress reminds us why we're suckers for a pretty dress. This is a floral-print silk dress with sweetheart neckline and ruching at bust. Wrap detail at skirt and hidden zipper at back. Short flutter sleeves. Polka-dot peek-a-boo lining. 35" long, measured from shoulder. Shell: 100% silk. Lining: 100% acetate.
