Three quarter length jackets were popular over long boots and short skirts. At night, long fishtail gowns and dramatic flared skirts, some with a high/low hem wowed the front row guests. Designer Pamella DeVos also loves to include rich embroidery and beading. There was a great cross hatch embroidered bodice on a blue cocktail dress and fully beaded gowns.
The designer always loved fashion, but practical parents urged her to study business instead. She nurtured her creative impulses with art history and worked in women's retail in school. The well rounded background clearly paid off in her success. Celebrity fans include Katie Holmes, Tyra Banks and Jane Seymour.
