oscardressiloveTomorrow marks a proud day for Charlotteans. Although Charlotte, North Carolina may be known as the second largest financial center in the U.S., our love of art + fashion takes center stage. And is there any better validation of that than Mr. de la Renta himself coming into town?

The evening of Friday, April 29th, Oscar de la Renta will present his Fall 2011 collection as part of the The Art of Style, an evening fashion show and special gala at the Mint Museum Uptown. Pinch me now ... I can barely believe that I will be working with Oscar backstage for the fashion show tomorrow from sun up to sun down. Once the show is over, I will wave my wand and turn into a princess to join the party!

My favorite dress from the Fall 2011 collection? Hands down, the nylon tulle sleeveless illusion neckline with embroidered bodice and full skirt. Paired with the black crewel threadwork Moroccan Beni embroidered ivory shearling coat ... beyond gorgeous! Trust me, I cannot wait to touch it!

So in case you missed Fashion Week in February, or are unable to make it to the big event tomorrow night, enjoy this snapshot of my favorite looks from the Oscar de la Renta collection.
