Held at an Upper West Side church, The Style Salon previewed a mixture of apparel and accessory designers from both in state and out. Kachi Designs and Nailah opened the show with colorful pieces, accented by studded leather clutches. Look #6, a yellow printed blouse with a ruffled collar caught my eye. While it was a collection I personally wouldn’t wear, it was well put together and fun to watch.
Act II was Maria Michele by Maria Tumminello with Sukari New York accessories. The lambskin and ostrich bags in bright hues are perfect for an evening out. While I feel the apparel was supposed to have the same affect, it seemed to push the envelope a little too far. Sequins, animal prints, ruching and metallics were too busy for a single look. However, Tumminello did shine through with a nude georgette skirt and satin wedding gown with crystal applique.
Millinery by Ikasho was the final part of the night. Models marched in straw fedoras and cloches trimmed with silk, leather, ribbon and buttons. Wearing just simple white blouses, placed all focus the head pieces. Overall, The Style Salon deemed a successful night for these up-and-coming designers.
