Who Is Kevan Hall, the Designer Whose Dresses Were Featured in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 2, Episode 13, “Adrienne’s Fashion Show”?
Season 2, Episode 13 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills had us all kinds of excited because we got to see Adrienne Maloof’s buzzed-about shoe collection. Although she’s no stranger to business ventures (her family owns the Palms Resort in Vegas and the Sacramento Kings), we were stoked to see what Adrienne could come up with on her own.
As the other RHOBH ladies teased, it was a little hard to get a peek at Adrienne’s shoes because the models were sashaying down the runway in some gorgeous, long dresses. So who made the dresses that hid the Maloof hoof? The gowns were created by fashion designer Kevan Hall. His name might not sound familiar, but you’ve probably seen his work before. Here’s what we know about talented designer:
Hall is a Detroit native who studied design at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and received the Peacock Award for “Outstanding Fashion Design." In 1988, he and his wife launched Kevan Hall Couture, a collection which “melded a more relaxed couture look with sensible pricing that pleased retailers like Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, I. Magnin, and other fine stores nationwide,” according to Hall’s official website.
Over the years, Hall’s been nominated for several prestigious honors, including the NAACP award for Great American Designer. Then in 2002, Hall launched his own signature line that “emphasizes purity of style, incomparable tailoring, and sensuously draped streamlined silhouettes,” says Hall’s site. Since then, Hall and his designs have been featured in magazines, national TV shows, and on celebrities such as Renée Zellweger and Debra Messing.
