Fashion, food, and fun at this year’s annual benefit luncheon and fashion show. This sold-out event hosted over 640 guests and featured designs by Oscar de la Renta. Saks Fifth Avenue sponsored a stunning runway show featuring 70 beautiful day, evening, and bridal designs from the new 2017 collection. Without a doubt, the elegant blue Lake Tahoe backdrop set the stage for an unforgettable show. Guests from all over California gather together to help preserve what is arguably one of the most beautiful places on earth, the Jewel of The Sierras, Lake Tahoe.
The League to Save Lake Tahoe’s annual benefit has become more than just a tradition. Since the very first show in 1969, held by Bill Blass, the event has grown beyond expectation. From a handful of friends along the beach to the now “New York” style fashion production, there is no better way to say thank you to those preserving this stunning gem. Oscar de la Renta has been a long time participant in this event and has helped raise funds by headlining their designs since 1995. The show was held at the immaculate Schumacher family estate on the shores of Lake Tahoe. Oliver Luxury Real Estate is proud to be a sponsor of such a spectacular event that helps to preserve the lake we so cherish.
There are many factors that go into putting on a production of this caliber. From the designs the models wear to the stage they walk on, every detail is carefully chosen. This year’s event featured decor by J. Riccardo Benavides who provided gorgeous baroque pinewood chandeliers. Along with the chandeliers, Benavides also produced custom white canvas parasols that sat high above the guest to create protection against the summer sun and add a whimsical flare. As the show came to an end, the fun was just beginning as guests were given the chance to purchase their favorite deigns in the trunk show.
