fall winter 2005
Olympus New York Fashion Week
Dear Gorgeous Darlings, The combination of glamorous embellishment and elegant simplicity is all too often a hard find, but not for the designer also known for her bridal collection. Monique Lhuillier’s fall winter ready-to-wear runway show hits the right mark of richly jeweled dresses that enhance rather than distract from the wearer’s own elegance– all with exquisite “across the table” detailing. -S.
