Joanna Mastroianni’s Fall 2008 collection was inspired by Moroccan traditions; the line reflected her fascination with Moorish architecture. With this collection, Mastroianni has moved away from her Russian roots and into the grillwork and inlaid tiles of a mysteriously sexy culture.

Distinct patterns with a high-shine wattage were paired with storybook capes. They created a dreamy quality on the runway. The color palette of lapis, black, and a show-stopping red were dramatic, yet wearable. The line was embedded with ornate beading and embellished with embroidery. Plunging necklines and exquisite tailoring showed Mastroianni’s gift for design. Nothing looked rushed, and every piece reflected the Middle Eastern sensibility.
