Pamella Roland debuted her Spring/Summer 2016 collection at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
For the first ever fashion show at the museum, Roland brought out a collection inspired by artist Frank Stella’s simplicity and linear focus in his work. Roland translated Stella’s paintings and print work in to very streamlined silhouettes. On top of the simplistic base Roland layered lace, high shine fabrics and origami like folds, with white being the dominant color. Stella’s work will be available to view at the Whitney on October 30 until February 7.
At the show house in the Susan and John Hess Family Theatre of the museum there were celebrity supporters such as singer Mary J. Blige, actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and stylist Brad Goreski. Blige and Winstead attended wearing Roland’s designs. Roland kept her aesthetic of glamorous and feminine designs in this collection as seen by the many dresses and light pants. Roland, who has expanded the brand to include a contemporary bridge line and a bridal line, has attracted many celebrities and royalty to her designs such as Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry and Eva Longoria.
