Summary: Inspired by the night Manhattan skyline, Elene Cassis brought a variety of sheath dresses with timeless graphic elements. Bold black and white prints brought out the simplicity of the ensembles without overpowering each piece. "My clothing line ELENE CASSIS features classic and timeless designs that embody the essence of modern elegance, inspire self-confidence and celebrate the graceful curves of the female form," Cassis said of her line. Though it did get a bit repetitive with all of the dresses and same basic color palette, it was nice to see that not everything was exactly the same.

Color Palette: black, white, slate grey, warm grey, wine, tan, brushed steel

Fabrics & Textures: boucle wool, fox fur, leather, mink fur, silk, jersey, lamb, suede

Key Looks: Black leather and lamb suede jacket with black leather pencil skirt; Grey silk blouse with ow and pleated cuffs and collar; Black mink shirt sleeve top with black and white silk jersey dress.
