This is the re-birth of Fabulous365 and Lauradunn.com. I am so excited to be back and so excited to share my brand new site… and life with you! I will be putting up posts once or twice a week and hope you will be joining me on this luxury adventure. I also hope that you will read my mission statement in the about section… as it makes more sense to as why I have landed back in this world.
When I thought about my very first post on Luxury, the first name that came to mind was…Stello! Please read on to find out about one of my favorite fashion houses located in my very own Los Angeles.
I had searched for 3 years for the perfect mother of the bride dress… several times it looked like I may have found “the one.” Only to realize that each of the dresses chosen were not worthy of a dress that would go down in the Dunn/Fay Family history books. One that my grandchildren and great grandchildren would see. As a life long model and fashionista, I needed a dress that was not only totally my personality, but one that I would look back upon and not cringe. I wish I could say that about my own first wedding dress. Cringe is an understatement as it was a dress that was so trendy and so over the top “at the moment”… who knew 25 years later it would look like a monstrosity. So this time around, while not my wedding… it had to be a classically timeless creation. What’s a girl to do when the wedding party is now only 6 weeks away and there is no dress in sight? Well, Stello.
My daughter Beau suggested that I reach out to STELLO. Stello is an off shoot design-create fashion house of fashion designer Michael Costello. Michael was the 4th place fan favorite on the 2010 Project Runway and the go to gown designer for Beyonce. Beau has worked with Michael and the design duo of Stephanie and Jennifer (Micheal’s cousins) before and wholeheartedly recommended Stello.
