Interview: Designer Lela Rose Takes Us Back To The Ladylike South For FW 2015

Lela Rose has an agenda, and it’s rooted deep in her desire to constantly experiment with fabrics and her past, particularly when she lived in the South. Down there, women look nice all the time – combined with elements of bird watching and the Old West, her modern take on rural life is quite beautiful. We caught up with her during NYFW to talk historic inspirations, southern mentality, and industry perseverance.
