What better place to preview fall fashion than the breathtaking splendor of the gardens of Lotusland in Montecito’s own backyard. Combining the allure of historic estates with local lore, our contemporary and romantic feature is a tribute to Lotusland’s iconic founder Madame Ganna Walska. Shooting photos among the never-ending acres of natural beauty of lemon groves, arching trees, historic palms, classic lily ponds and cactus jutting out of the earth like spikes is akin to opening one birthday gift after another. Everywhere you look, there’s another treasure!

Walska’s penchant for the dramatic and unexpected, as a woman of truly unique character, inspired many. Known to love fashion, she referred to herself as an “enemy of the average” in her own life. The botanical splendor at Lotusland works perfectly for our clothing and accessory picks, which were anything but average.

Looks range from the elegant and romantic Jonathan Cohen long floral gown to a fashion-forward white leather embroidered motorcycle jacket and whimsical party dresses. Fashion statement eyewear and vintage Chanel accessories add a classical finishing touch to our contemporary pieces that will no doubt become classics of tomorrow. Our local boutiques selected a plethora of feminine looks and palettes for the changing colors of the season that provide inspiration for both beauty and fun. As one of the most iconic—not to mention beautiful and fun—places in the world, a visit to Lotusland is always a soul-touching experience. Enjoy!
