LOS ANGELES, Oct 17, 2008 / FW/ — Inspired by Aphrodite, the goddess of love, Joseph Domingo continued his exploration of feminine mystique as he engaged in the art of seduction by baring just the right amount of SKIN, which by the way is the title of the collection.

“It’s not about being overtly sexy but being sensuous,” says Domingo. “For example, a bare shoulder can often be more alluring than being completely naked. It’s about the promise of possibilities.”

Featuring some 40-plus pieces, “SKIN” adds an edge of desire to Joseph’s signature touches of lavish luxury. From light-as-air chiffons to smooth silk, seriously elegant fabrics range in color palette from nude tones and white to blush.

Hems fall short or long with no in-betweens while silhouettes cling or delicately skim the surface of the body. Fabric overlays extend the theme along with fish scale, scallop and Garden of Eden leaf details.

The women’s line is complemented by a small men’s collection in relaxed, sporty looks with equal emphasis on cream, navy and khaki. The Joseph Domingo Spring/Summer 2009 Collection was sponsored by Elite Progressive Cosmetology.
