Lake Michigan — where Pamella Roland’s nearby home sits on the water — served as the starting point for resort. “I had my design team there last year, and they were like, ‘Oh my gosh, the sunsets here!'” said Roland, who rendered the collection in shades of orange and pink to mimic a sun setting on water, one dress featuring an ombré of colors.
An orange floral lace jumpsuit was the collection’s most show-stopping party frock; other gowns featured blown-up floral prints and Roland’s signature patterned beading. A pale blue ballgown with a bustier top made from a “wave” of silver sequins embodied the collection’s water theme in a subtle, elegant way.
