Summary: I have to admit, I was mesmerized by my awesome line of sight to Anna Wintour (no, I did not try to interview her). Once the lights dimmed I remembered that I was at the show I had been anticipating all week. Doo.Ri. After all, she literally blew everyone away last spring with her phenomenal draping and styling. So she had raised her own bar and our expectations really high. Did she meet them? Sometimes yes and sometimes no. The bubble-hemmed jersey dresses and frocks began looking very repetitious, but the the bordeaux and emerald printed Georgette dress with Swarovski crystal blew me away. She will do very well with this line. She is a crowd pleaser and so darn adorable and talented, you can’t resist.
