Veteran fashion designer Patricia Clyne's Helios & Luna---staged in the company showroom- was a colorful initiation into a fashion driven women's label chock full of wearable top/skirt combos made from silks and different kinds of wool----and flattering dresses.

|alpaca houndstooth print jacket over a shell and with a polka dot print pencil skirt|
|Très Chic-grape stretch bouclé stand collar 3/4 sleeve blouse with exposed zip back over grape pencil skirt in stretch bouclé with exposed zip back|
We favored the versatile mini dresses as in the cocoon shape cap sleeve dress-pictured below--- that is a staple wardrobe item---to wear with leggings, with stockings and boots or pumps...or in warmer temps with sandals. Nice.
|Rayon matte jersey cocoon shape cap sleeve dress...with a single side panel draped and piped in silk fire. Asymmetric chocolate colored patent leather bow belt|
Another modern style we favored---the washed silk charmeuse cap sleeve t-shirt dress with draped pockets and shirred dress.
|asymmetrical hem of a georgette T-shirt with a double layer of georgette-over dark chocolate double knit leggings|
We also think-when delivered, the clothes will look great on women of all shapes which is always a big plus---some of the pieces were big on the models.
