Taking his inspiration from Elizabeth Taylor in Butterfield 8, Carmen Marc Valvo bewitched his audience with sex appeal and romance. The collection had a classic Hollywood vibe that was echoed through slim silhouettes and dual satin. Sheer fabric was integrated throughout the parade of gorgeous dresses that utilized intricate tailoring that made his line stand out from the pack. Jewel tones further turned up the style factor by ensuring that the pieces were very on-trend, but not trendy. This season, lingerie was another of Valvo’s inspirations and it brought an air of naughty sophistication to the line. Intimate apparel played peek-a-boo from underneath the dresses, while feathers captured a sense of whimsy. Many of the models sported fur, which further added to the sumptuous feeling of the clothing.
