If you’re a bridezilla with a deep love of taffeta or a recession-proof fashionista with cash to burn, your shopping fantasies are about to be fulfilled in the form of Douglas Hannant. The designer is ditching the Big Apple to pitch his wares to stylish Louisvillians this week at Rodes For Her Boutique. A darling of Park Avenue, Hannant has avoided the celebrity circus (although Courteney Cox is rumored to be an admirer) and built his reputation by furnishing the party-goers of Palm Beach in gorgeous resort wear (think kaftans and maxi dresses) and stylish brides in limitless satin. In a bid to woo new customers — and keep the old ones on his side — his original take on the “trunk show” means we all get to ask him questions, seek his fashion advice firsthand and down a glass or two of champagne. Schweedie, it’s just absolutely fabulous! —Sarah Ivens
