Summary: I always look forward to Brazilian designer Carlos Miele's shows. For one, the music is usually amazing (Max Decastro, played guitar on the runway) and two, who doesn't like to look at beautiful crafted gowns? Miele said his inspiration was "endless spatial manipulation, rich color dialogue and the possibilities of the three-dimensional geometric progressions of Sol LeWitt (an American artist linked to various movements, including Conceptual art and Minimalism)." That would explain the origami pleating and seemingly 3-D prints that abound. The burn-out mink coats and boleros are sure to be seen on a red carpet near you.
