TIME/PLACE: @ 2:00PM, Saturday, September 6, 2008
The Seminary at 20th Street between 9th/10th Avenue

As this was a Paul Wilmot event, there were a lot of heavy hitters in attendance: Linda Fargo, Robert Burke, Dawn Mello, Ken Downing, Bill Cunningham, to name a few.

HAIR/MAKEUP: Odile did the hair but we’d love to know who did the hats? They were adorable Rastafarian style pancake hats that gave a bohemian/carefree look to the easy colorful collection.


There were some out of the ordinary pieces here, such as the sleeveless dress and a mini skirt with some bubble gum detailing worn with a simple white tank and some fun jewelry by AURELIELIE BIDERMAN for Adam Lippes.

There was lots of sheer voile as well as some prettily delicate pieces in an ecru crochet knit that looked best in the longer silhouettes,
Most of the color was restricted to the lemon yellow and fuchsia patent leather wedge sandals but Lippes broke out the color towards the end with a winning grouping of shocking pink chiffon tanks, dolman tops and a comfy dress.

BEST PIECE: the casually sophisticated cerulean silk chiffon laced back dress that you could well imagine a young woman wearing on her trip to the Greek Isles for a special night out, like LINA in “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”.
