Velvet curtains flanked the midtown Hudson Theatre where Douglas Hannant unveiled his fall 2008 collection. Tim Gunn had a ringside seat for this line that defied the ordinary and truly took the fashion world to new heights. Hannant once again proved why socialistas are literally clamoring to get their hands on his newest creations.

Violins piped in the background as the clothing hit the runway. The line was fresh, provocative and focused on shapes. Slim cuts were punched up with structured skirting. The dresses had a sculptural feel that was enhanced with feathers and lace. The ladylike cashmere coats were truly elegant and worked to enhance asymmetrical cuts and body-conscious suiting. Organza, ruffles, silk, and satin were utilized throughout the collection which sparkled while playing with necklines. At the denouement, the show seemed to create a mirror image of itself. The models stood on opposite sides of the stage and looked like counterpoints of each other. It was a European sensibility with an uptown undercurrent.

Douglas Hannant truly understands his customer. He knows women, luxury, and ultimately, Hannant knows how to put forth a memorable collection.
