Mara Hoffman presented her Fall/Winter 2010 collection at Open house Gallery (201 Mulberry Street between Kenmare and Spring). There will also be a musical performance by Living Sacrifice-www.allforthemountain.com. Twenty live models wore looks from the Fall/Winter collection. “Being a fan of performing and visual arts, this was the perfect format to display the collection,” said Hoffman. “The setting will be mystical and cosmic with ceremonial elements incorporated to full immerse the audience and allow one to really connect with the collection.”
The Fall/Winter 2010 collection is futuristic, chic with strong feminine direction, it includes dresses and separates with mixed print and solid combos, with ruching details and different textures combined together within a single garment, as well as solid metallic gunmetal jackets. The collection features bold prints in darker tones with pops of colors such as red, greens, blues and purple. Fabrics used are washed silks, printed chiffons, silk jersey mixed with suede and velvet chiffon burnout.
