Recently, I had dinner with Betty Halbreich at Donohues in the Upper East Side. You may know her from the 2013 documentary Scatter My Ashes in Bergdorf Goodman and through her highly successful book I’ll Drink To That: A Life in Style with a Twist published this year. Betty has since become a bit of a celebrity in the industry, but that night dinner was purely a catch-up between good friends talking about, among other things, iconic photographer Victor Skrebneski (a friend of Betty from growing up in Chicago and the man who shot my bridal ad in Town & Country—more on that in a later post.

The Spring Collection for 2015 is a return to the very foundations of the Donald Deal design philosophy—inspired eveningwear that is thoughtfully designed and crafted with the utmost attention to detail and quality. Intricate beadwork, lace, and the designer’s elegant navy and white crystal lined polka dots are some of the key elements to his Spring collection. The new season is also an invitation to a lush garden party—tropical floral motifs are complimented by rich greens, fuchsia, and a deep purple. This season also reflects Donald Deal’s desire to get deep into the wardrobe of his client, pieces that build on her personal style and lend a sense of timelessness.
