AWG Fashions: Resortwear by Eroleen

The Kentucky Derby is deemed one of the most prestigious sporting events in the world. While attendees at this year's staging, held at Churchill Downs last Saturday, turned out in haute ensembles, fashionistas on The Rock who came out in support of the American Women's Group of Jamaica (AWG) fund-raiser, 'Fashionable Derby', certainly gave them a run for their money. The hot-ticket event held at the Tai Flora Luxe-styled poolside of the Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel presented a Kentucky Derby watch party and fashion show.

One of the standout showcases from the runway segment was Resortwear by Eroleen, which sent its signature prints and silhouettes down the runway. The collection included pantsuits, kimonos, sundresses, swimwear, with a serving of sequins.

Saturday Social was front-row.
