Summary: The title for the Edition by Georges Chakra show might as well have been, "Go big or go home." Recession be damned, Chakra showed us the bling with glossy fabrics, Swarovski Crystals, sequins, jewels, ribbons and rosettes. While the over-the-top evening clothes were more misses than hits–at least when it comes to populating my closet–Chakra had some beautifully sculpted silhouettes reminiscent of 50's Futurism. Chunky heels provided a sturdy base for so many details, and hair and make-up were strikingly restrained, letting the clothes–literally–shine.
