Grits aren't the usual fare at the Phoenix Society, but they were served for the first time in ten years at the club's "Grits at the Ritz" benefit for the Shepherd's Spinal Center. They weren't the only surprise on the menu. Normally a men's organization, the Phoenix Society hosted the event for three generations of Atlanta women -- past, present and future debutantes and their relations -- who enjoyed a new red-wine-soaked variation on the classic Southern dish. The luncheon also featured a fashion show sponsored by Saks Fifth Avenue.
One of the oldest debs, Miss Nancy, who has been the chairwoman of the Society's biannual ball for 42 years, lamented on the loss of femininity in fashion. "When I was young, we were taught to dance, dance, dance. Now, you can't even find a ballgown."
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)

For her first solo album in over 10 years, Fergie tapped Carine Roitfeld, Mert and Marcus, Giovanni Bianco and more to create a fashion-focused video approach for the record, Double Dutchess. "Giovanni really helped me get back in touch with my tomboy side, my hardside," said the singer. #wwdeye #wwdfashion ( : @slovekinpics)
“Volumes and Graphic Art of the Nineties are the main inspirations of the new Aquilano.Rimondi SS 2018 collection,” said cocreative directors Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18
