Chado Ralph Rucci Resort 2009 RTW
A sporty looking set.
A top with volume.
A beautiful collar on this lovely suit.
Pintucks or topstitching gives this a modern look.
A very Oriental effect in a stiff woven.
A great dress in the Claire McCardell vein.
A simple dress in a unique fabric.
Nobody does perfectly simple like Rucci.
Bill Blass RTW Resort 2009
A very nautical effect with a bow-blouse and extra wide trousers.
Nice stripe mix.
Another bowed blouse, but with a more open neckline this time.
A darling dress, and a lovely silhouette.
A great graphic print, and another bow.
A very nice ensemble, and great color placement.

Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Fall 2008
A really intriguing ensemble with a cropped jacket with oversized faggotting and a ruffled top.
Amazing pleating on this coat. See detail below.
Unusual details, such as a metal lapel mesh a la Whiting & Davis, and a really nice mesh scarf with pearls.
A tour de force with bias tubing. Herringbone Battenburg in effect.
I rather like all the little straps with the top showing beneath.
Interesting coat with what looks like another metal mesh for the midriff section.
I love this knitted piece! Shades of the White Queen Through the Looking Glass.
Very Orientale smoking jacket with metal mesh harem pants.
