Den­nis Basso: Fall Fash­ion

The Jewish Voice - - SPECIAL FEATURES - By Julie Sagoskin

The king of fur and fab­u­lous gowns, Den­nis Basso, showed off his spring collection on Mon­day, Septem­ber 11th at the Plaza Ho­tel's grand ball­room dur­ing the most ex­cit­ing time of the year – Fash­ion Week!

From ro­man­tic fl wing gowns to edgy fur vests, the show was defi nitely an ode to what Den­nis does best – glam­our! The looks which were matched with David Webb jew­elry showed off Den­nis' in­ter­na­tional fl ir for the mod­ern yet so­phis­ti­cated woman. Af­ter over three decades, D in the fash­ion world, he has found the per­fect bal­ance of fun and fash­ion for­ward­ness.

The de­signer's lat­est collection cel­e­brated the 35th an­niver­sary of Den­nis Basso in fash­ion. Basso said his “in­spi­ra­tion for this show was the in­ter­na­tional woman who has trav­eled the world to ex­otic and in­ter­est­ing lo­cales. Over the 35 years, I’ve met so many spec­tac­u­lar, strong and glam­orous women. As this collection was de­signed, I re­flected on this amaz­ing jour­ney and I hope that I can trans­port you with me.”

The color pal­ette of the show con­sisted of warm spice and vi­brant tones in rust, khaki, cayenne, vi­o­let and aqua mixed with earthy neu­trals in vanilla and sand. Silk chif­fons, geor­gette, and tulle were ruf­fle in glit­ter­ing, and bil­low­ing sil­hou­ettes while dresses were hand em­broi­dered in del­i­cate mo­saics. No Den­nis Basso show would be com­plete without weight­less furs in mink, sable, fox, lynx and broad­tail and of course some al­li­ga­tor and se­quins.

Amelia Ham­lin, daugh­ter of ac­tress and Real House­wives of Bev­erly Hills star Lisa Rinna and hus­band Harry Ham­lin made her New York Fash­ion Week de­but at the show as her proud par­ents watched from the front row. Other stars who at­tended in­clude Rachel Lind­say, Kimiko Glenn, Carol Alt, Betty Who, Rachel Bay Jones, Laura Osnes, Dee Hilfi er, Mari­gay McKee, Ra­mona Singer, Kelly Ben­si­mon, Tina Craig, Alexia Ryan, Dana Creel, Louise Ca­muto, and Chris­tine Mack. Ivana Trump was also spot­ted wear­ing a chee­tah coat but made it very clear she was there for fash­ion, not to dis­cuss her ex, Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump.

From fur lined jack­ets to full on fur coats and fur trimmed dresses, this collection will have you pre­pared for those chilly fall nights while the jew­eled gowns bring glam­our back for the mod­ern woman. Flow­ing lines and ex­otic print tu­nics and shirts are also part of Den­nis' in­ter­na­tional wom­enswear collection.

As al­ways, the Basso collection ex­udes ex­cess and why not - it is a cel­e­bra­tion of his decades in the in­dus­try. The Game of Th ones sound­track which played as the mod­els made their way down the run­way was defin tely in­tended to pull in a younger au­di­ence, aka so­cial me­dia in­flu­encers and the next gen­er­a­tion of fash­ion­istas.
