Anait Bian is a fashion sleeper. Who knew that such stunning smart wear would come alive during four o'clock high tea at The Plaza Athenee in Manhattan yesterday afternoon? The clothing from her Fall 2007 ready-to-wear collection was structured to flatter the curves of a female body and the styling was reminiscent of the 40s. All of the pieces had a retro flair mixed with modern beading and monochromatic chicness.
Everything was done in a solid color, namely black, grey and muted emerald green with a burst of rust and teal in the last two pieces. The collection was reserved and glamorous, which I love, but the one area that ruined it for me were the jutting shoulder pads on the tailored suits.
Some of the highlights were a modern black catsuit with a velvet tassel hanging from the neck and the perfect velvet and wool little black cocktail dress that would be fitting for any semi-formal winter event. The finale and hit of the show was a teal mini shift dress with flowing organza sleeves, a bubble bottom and a jewel collar. I can already imagine the demands from young Hollywood party girls for this spectacular show stopper.
The price point of the clothing is still undetermined, as is the date of arrivals in select stores. But be on the look out for Anait Bian! To see a few more images from the show,
