TIME & PLACE: Sunday, February 15, 2009, 9:30PM – the last show of the evening
The Salon, Bryant Park

This Japanese designer provided one of the few shots of color we’ve seen yet this season. Chartreuse worked in the eighties, and it works now, as a silk tank or feminine blouse with small fifties style bows atop the buttonholes.
Juxtaposed to the fifties style jackets was a multicolor microchip silk print. The eighties soundtrack brought us back to the glory days of the downtown scene that has inspired so many designers since then. The soundtrack, Promise You a Miracle by the Scottish new wave band, Simple Minds, had members in the audience bouncing in their seats to the beat.
TREND: Lame, this time. The designer brought out a boxy silver jacket, a switch from the gold most designers have been showing.
This designer has a romantic soul, which came through in the last empire evening dress and some shorter versions in pewter and rose petal pink, which could work for a bride and her bridesmaids.
