Fashion Week at the Encore Shop on Maple Street held six days of fashionable events, but the highlight of the week was the Tuesday night “Fall Into Fashion Party” held at the elegant home of the retired Major General David Mize and his wife Jane.

Entertainment was provided by the Nick Ellman Jazz Trio, and the evening also included a lovely buffet by Mr. B’s Bistro and more. The Encore Shop, which this year celebrates 40 years of supporting the musicians of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, is a resale shop that emphasizes the value of resale clothing and the importance of supporting the state’s only philharmonic orchestra.

Chaired by Melissa Gordon, the evening featured an upscale designer boutique where guests could shop for jewelry, purses and scarves. Notable designer labels included Hermès, Coach, Chanel, Michael Kors, Donald Pliner, Bottega, Mary Frances, Mignon Faget and more. Decor featured a floral centerpiece donated by Carrollton Flower Market.
