#NYFW Dennis Basso…

Every season I am amazed at the sheer magnitude of the beautiful women in attendance for Mr. Basso’s runway show. Famous celebrities, media sweethearts, and powerful NY socialites, flock to the tents to catch a glimpse of the designers latest creations for the coming season.

A moment for Joan
In the moments before the house lights went up, and the first heel hit the catwalk, the designer requested a moment of silence in the theater, to honor the memory of his friend and Fashion Week staple, Joan Rivers recent passing. It was a lovely sentiment and one I will not forget.

The Collection…
Luxury resorts in the 1960’s inspired the designer’s Spring/Summer 2015 Collection. The women who traveled to these luxurious destinations needed to pack a variety of chic ensembles appropriate for daytime activities or evening events in the warmer temperatures.

Details & Colors…

In typical Basso fashion, the collection was chock full of embroidered cocktail dresses, exquisite ball gowns, and playful separates. The colors of the collection ranged from bright white to soft muted shades in rose, mauve, grey, and taupe. Sheer floral prints looked modern with embellished details. The designer utilized a wide variety of fabrics from organza and linens along with leather and furs in the collection. Yup, that’s right; Basso included his signature fur & leather pieces, even for spring.

Verdict…
Whether you agree with Basso’s fabric choices or not, there’s no denying, that he stays true to his design aesthetic & vision. And something tells me one of the gowns may have a Red Carpet moment during awards season.
