On Friday, May 2, the Four Seasons hotel in Las Vegas hosted a “Derby Rose Champagne Luncheon” produced by Dress For Success, Southern Nevada. The date of the show was the day before the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby, and the theme, not surprisingly, was the derby and the hats that are customarily worn there.

So, unlike most fashion shows, this was not about the dresses – most models wore simple “little black dresses” that symbolize the mission of the group. Rather, the show featured 30 minutes of models wearing the extravagant and elegant hats of Louisa Voisine. The slide show accompanying this article shows many of her creations on the runway.

Voisine, of Henderson, Nevada, is an internationally recognized milliner, who has had her creations featured in events, galleries and competitions across the globe. She frequently supports charity events and organizations such as Dress for Success.

Dress for Success in Las Vegas is an affiliate of the international organization which provides professional clothing and counseling for unemployed women seeking to enter the workforce. They provide their client women with a free business suit, as well as the appropriate accessories, footwear, and cosmetic/toiletry items to prepare for an interview. When she is hired, they then follow up by providing counseling and a week's worth of clothing suitable for her work envrionment, so her first paycheck isn't all spent on clothes.
