Fashion Week Front Row: Lela Rose Spring 2012

The Lela Rose Spring '12 collection is inspired by the neon sign graveyards of Vegas – once so garish and colorful, now with burned-out bulbs and weathered hues – and the amusement park vibe of Coney Island with its electric and playful spirit.

The Lela Rose for Payless Spring '12 runway collection oozes with Rose's inspiration and features both vibrant and bleached colors, graphic shapes and resin studding on wood-stacked wedge soles – a nod to
burned-out neon bulbs.

Iconic of Lela  Rose designs and her strong use of signature fabrics, shoe styles for the
runway feature Lela’s Spring '12 materials including the "carousel" cotton print, "bulb-dot" silk and "checked jacquard" used in the ready-to-wear apparel collection.
