Summary: About his Fall '09 collection, Tuleh designer Bryan Bradley said "I recently reread Them, by Francine du Plessix Gray
(a memoir of her parents Alexander Liberman and Tatiana du
Plessix two Russian émigrés who met in Paris and, at the start of WWII, fled together to New York where her mother gained fame as a hat designer and her father climbed the ranks of the Condé Nast publishing empire.) and instead of finding Tatiana slightly appaling, I was impressed with her elegant fortitude and majestic ability of self reinvention."
The presentation, held at the New York Design Center, was not only a tribute to an era of another hard time, it was absolutely beautiful and very uptown society Gosspi girl. The collection ran the gamut from feminine menswear to stunning ruffled flowing gowns. There were even little splashes of sequins and leather in made to look anything but trashy and tough. Everything was girly and drool worthy. This is a designer I have admired for many years and have enjoyed watching his asthetic evolve. Considering he is soon launching a diffusion line called Bryan Bradly as well as an accessories line, I think we will be seeing alot more of him in the future.
