The first show of the night was a Prêt-à-Porter (Ready-to-wear) Style Showcase featuring special guest models, cute dogs of all sizes, in Eccentric Apparel, a new line of pet couture. The best part of the show was when one of the adorable pups decided that walking the runway was so passé and curled up in the middle of the runway refusing to move. Eventually after some encouragement the pup continued on with its runway debut, but somehow I felt this reminded me of an America's Next Top Model challenge.
The next line to showcase was LUXXE Collection, designed by Nicolette Mayer. I was afforded a chance to interview her backstage, and photograph her collection before the show. Of note was the predominant presence of animal print in her collection. Nicolette's creative vision for the line is one of "effortless chic redefined for everyday dressing, a sexy elegance". Below I have highlighted her inclusion of animal print, but her collection encompassed a variety of looks that I will share in tomorrow's post.
