Spring is right around the corner and who better than the fashionistas at FGI San Antonio and Neiman Marcus to host a fabulous event introducing us to special guest, IPPOLITA. Where art meets fashion, that is where you will find IPPOLITA. A fine jewelry designer from Italy, IPPOLITA was founded in 1999 by Italian artist and jewelry designer, Ippolita Rostagno. The brand has been credited with propelling fine jewelry into the realm of fashion by embracing color, comfort and exuberance, the distinguishing hallmarks of a line that celebrates women of all ages.

Taking in the beauty of IPPOLITA jewelry last night was an exciting experience. The event was filled with local fashion insiders, mingling along and sipping on champagne. After the 2018 FGI Board was sworn in, the trend presentation began. Emceed by Xitlalt Herrera-Salazar, Public Relations Manager for Neiman Marcus and spokesperson for IPPOLITA, the models showcased some exciting trends for the upcoming season while attendees received style tips from the house of IPPOLITA. Here are just a few of our favorite trends from last night.

Trend #1: Yellow

This energy inducing color was showcased through a fun and stylish Alive & Olivia shift dress with statement making sleeves and a mouth dropping Stella McCartney dress. Paired with these stunning looks were classic IPPOLITA yellow gold bangles, described as the perfect accessory to take you from day to night. “A great stack and a great hoop can take you anywhere.”

Trend #2: Stripes Are Back

More is more. Stripes were layered in confident ways! Each garment was statement making on its own, yet when layered together, coordinated in perfect harmony. Paired with IPPOLITA statement making earrings, a pop of sparkle made for exciting details. Ippolita says, “If I can’t wear it to the grocery store I don’t want to design it”.


Trend #3: Pink, Red, and all, it’s the related tones mixed together.

The audience couldn’t have been more romanced by the combination of these amorous colors. Pink, red, and orange, oh my! A fun style tip of the evening. Award winning model, Anna Monnette, strutted down the runway in a shade of pink, finished with a fur orange overcoat. The perfect spring twist on an otherwise fall staple. IPPOLITA’s words of wisdom, “Don’t be afraid of variety. Get something with everything on it”.


Trend: Metallics continue to reign

One of the evening’s most glamorous looks was a gold metallic cocktail dress paired with a leopard strappy shoe. Again, more is more, and less is a bore. Understated, yet statement making. IPPOLITA paired rose gold pieces with this look as they are easy to mix with other metals and encouraged layering. A favorite IPPOLITA look consisted of a beautiful 3 tiered silver necklace layered with a silver Y necklace, the end look was nothing short of amazing.
