Who would have thought! 16 of my most divine LBDs and rare LR(red)Ds are packed in their individual garment bags ready for the flight to Las Vegas. Women's Wear Daily has teamed with Paris Pret-a-Porter to present WWDMAGIC, the largest women's apparel fair in North America. Approximately 60,000 visitors will enjoy a display of dresses from The Darnell Collection including Dior, Adolfo, Courreges, Roland Klein, Beene and Cassini along with other extraordinarily beautiful dresses.

Where: Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas NV, USA.
When: 13th - 15th February - I will be signing books 11:00AM-3:30PM daily.

Have a look at the miriad of emerging and established fashion designers from the US and Paris exhibiting at the fair on this website
“Dreaming of Chanel” Installation & Book Signing –Author Charlotte Smith (Simon & Schuster) will sign copies of her latest book “Dreaming of Chanel.”  In conjunction with a “Then & Now” concept installation, Charlotte will display 16 vintage dresses (“Then”) from her own famous collection – eight “little black dresses” and eight “little red dresses.” WWDMAGICwill also display the “Now” – eight modern day designs of both the little black and red dresses.  

I am taking these dresses, along with 14 others, with me to Vegas to be part of my display.
