September 4th, 2008 Garment District

We missed Nuj Novakhett these past few seasons.
Fortunately her deft tailoring, fashion flattering structural silhouettes, impossibly luxe /lush fabrics…and superb eye for details are better than ever.
We wouldn’t miss a Novakhett presentation for anything!
This stunning designer was spending time in Europe when she attended a few “go-cart “(?)---or maybe a few vintage race/Formula One events.
This got her thinking: “…what happened to the time when women really dressed up for these outings?”
We don’t know if our “pit ho” (their words) gal pals who flock to Nascar Speedways here in the States, will don these impeccably stylish separates and dresses…but judging by the stores that carry this line (Harvey Nichols, LA’s Satine that sold out in a week…), plenty of females appreciate what Novakhett conjures up.
“Everything is linked-so even the models lining up are like the start of a race.”
We saw a blend of sexy secretary, posh day-to-evening looks…and glorious details like the black piping on a sand chiffon ruffle ‘secretary’ blouse, the b/w checked pattern on flattering cotton bustier with matching puff pie skirt, a gathered off-shoulder electric blue silk/cotton mini dress, and an Antique white Waterfall crepe draped dress that fit the model to perfection.
