NEW YORK, Sep 16, 2009 / FW/ — Ballerinas of the inspirational Degas paintings tip toe out of a canvas to glissade down the runway with grace and poise as Dennis Basso presented his after 5:00pm Spring/Summer 2010 collection at Bryant Park.
Silhouettes of simple scoop and asymmetrical neckline fitted tops blossomed into full-bodied, mid thigh and full length dresses.
Layered, hand tucked and sheering methods of organza, voile, crepe de chine and taffeta of bronze and platinum masked by cream and butter allowed each piece to move in a magical manner.
Trimming ribbon skirts, cover ups, shrugs and coats; mink sable, broad tail and chinchilla were introduced for the well suited touch of soft texture
A well-captivated audience witnessed the collection grow from soft and feminine to bold and striking.
Navy began to dominate the runway as prints were strengthened from rosettes to poppies of yellow and red with hints of greens on a cream canvas.
It was a breathtaking conclusion and delight to enjoy such a special collection come to life!
