Local fashionistas joined for a one-of-a-kind experience at the Park Grove penthouse sales gallery, starring power couple Isabel and Ruben Toledo, best known for their high-profile commissions that include exclusive designs worn by Michelle Obama, as well as high-profile collaborations with MAC and Louis Vuitton.
Designer Isabel Toledo is also known for her partnerships with Ohio-based plus-size brand Lane Bryant, and four successful collections of affordable plus-size dresses with a high-fashion spin. The evening at Park Grove showcased 35 looks from Isabel Toledo’s spring ’15 collection with long-length brocade printed dresses and avant-garde floppy head-wear. Isabel also signed copies of her autobiography, “Roots of Style” that includes illustrations by her her husband, artist Ruben Toledo.
Ruben’s wide range of artistic abilities attracted the Park Grove team to commission original artwork reflective of the Grove life. Ruben created original watercolor illustrations for the Park Grove brand that now grace the project’s website, brochures, and marketing collateral.
