 Baryshnikov Arts Center, NYC

Subtle sophistication-the ultimate chic--- was our thought-after the glamorous outing by designer Rita Vineris---with gorgeous construction--- hand finished details-featuring intricate beaded work-in tapered svelte silhouettes= all stunning.

And we also thought also-suitable for many body types.

A debut evening collection-the "effortless elegance" was inspired by master  of modernisim-the 20th century architect Louis Kahn,

 "Simple shapes"-maybe but perfectly fitted to each model---with lingerie like construction---in flattering, flowing body conscious cuts- with often revealing  deep back cutouts---that are sensuous-but never gaudy. Think no mishaps with these outfits...and customers with sophisticate tastes ---not voyeur ones-will appreciate.

We loved the luxurious textures and the fabric palette-shimmery metallics, rich silvers and golds---and jewel tone burgundy and red. Lovely.  

Polished hair-neatly sleeked back into mid-head buns...natural make-up-glossy lips, contour blush highlight cheekbones, brown rimmed eyes anchored by groomed brows. Neat as a pin.

Rita Vinieris-no surprise-a favorite designer of wedding gowns too
