Sugar, Spice and All That is Nice

One collection that should appear on every debutante’s wish list this fall will be designer Chris Han’s; her evening wear can be summed up in one word - lovely.

Han’s love of young elegance is exhibited by her straight-cut dresses draped with smooth chiffon. Wool cigarette pants with textured leather pockets add and element of self-assured chic to the line, while sheer peek-a-boo blouses contributed an element of naughty but nice to the show. Han’s faint use of shimmering metallics kicked-up her fall color palate of pale pink, champagne, ivory, grey, and black. Make-up (courtesy of Shannon Grey Williams and the MAC Pro Team) gave a youthful glow to the models who walked the runway in shoes provided by Ruthie Davis.

While Han’s design concept spoke in terms of refinement, oddly enough, the music provided for the show gave an erotic impression of a tropical rainforest eventually morphing into a session of H&M’s greatest hits. Elvis Costello’s, “Pretty Woman” would have been a simpler, more coherent fit.
