Derby Fashion Month continues with Abbey Glass

Whether you are getting ready for the Derby on May 7th or a Mother’s Day celebration on May 8th, there are plenty of reasons to visit Bella Rose, the premier women’s boutique in Downtown Lexington KY.  Starting today, April 14 through the 16th, we are featuring the Abbey Glass Trunk Show.  Her entire Spring and Summer line will be here to browse, try on and select for your Spring and Summer 2016 celebrations. And on April 25th, HeadCandi will be making their second visit to our store for custom hat orders for the 2016 Kentucky Derby!

Who is Abbey Glass?


We have recently added Abbey Glass to our long list of hand-selected designers, and we are proud to be the exclusive retailers of each of these designers in the Lexington KY area. We’ve added Abbey Glass to our collection because she offers a fresh spin on classic, tailored clothing for women.

The Atlanta, Georgia native is known for mixing creative textiles with clean lines, and a modern, feminine fit. After an endorsement by Jane Fonda’s GCAPP foundation and encouragement from her art teachers, the Atlanta native began her formal fashion education at Central Saint Martin’s at just 18 years old. Before graduating from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), with a degree in Apparel Design, Abbey had the opportunity to work under Marc Jacobs and Francisco Costa at Calvin Klein Collection. Upon graduation, she won a finalist spot in the Supima Design Competition runway show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in September 2012, which kickstart her career. Abbey derives much of her inspiration from vintage findings and her love of science and art.

Abbey Glass Trunk Show

From Thursday, April 14 to Saturday, April 16th, 2016 we will be hosting an Abbey Glass Trunk Show at our store (126 W. Maxwell Street, Lexington KY). We will showcase the Abbey Glass Spring and Summer line for our customers so they have the opportunity to order the dress, get it altered (if needed), and select the accessories including the hat to compliment your outfit – in time for the Derby or Mother’s Day.  Come in April 14-16th to see the full line, but here is a sampling of the Abbey Glass Spring Line:
