After Six has remained the largest men's formalwear manufacturer from its inception through today. It all began at the turn of the last century when men going formal wore tails and wing collars. Fast-forward to today and the elegant black tuxedo still sends a message of personal style. But as much as fashions have changed, After Six tuxedos have always meant good times and good taste.
Did you know that After Six actually invented tuxedo rentals? Or that the company was the first to bring out a machine-washable tuxedo? And as if that wasn't enough, After Six signed the first Hollywood star, Tony Martin, to appear in its tuxedos. The company took formalwear to the fights in Atlantic City and also put some of the most famous menswear designer labels into tuxedos, like Oscar de la Renta. That's why over the years when the invitation read "Black Tie", After Six was there.

Following the success of the Lela Rose wedding collection, and the much talked about dress designs Lela Rose created for Jenna Bush's "house party", it seemed only natural that the Lela Rose Bridesmaid collection would follow.
