It may seem odd to cover a beautiful woman’s face during a runway show, but at the Silva Bours presentation at Style Fashion Week, masks and gowns ran the show. Set to a rock violin version of The Phantom of the Opera, Silva Bours’s collection was part confection, part edge, and all about the details. With fit-and-flare silhouettes dominating the collection, the party-ready dresses featured rich brocade and textured lace. One dress combined an embroidered bodice with a pick-up gingham skirt, mashing together images of Dorthy from The Wizard of Oz with contemporary couture. The overall presentation was dramatic, opulent, and took the childhood dream of a princess gown into adulthood.

Following Silva Bours, Cristina Nitopi presented her collection of technicolor evening gowns. The eye-catching collection balanced warm neutrals with splashes of bold color ranging from bright cerulean to a rich, deep pink. The collection continued the evening’s spotlight on texture, with gowns boasting textured floral cutouts, detailed pintucks, and a florist shop’s worth of fabric petals. Although the presentation of the gowns felt streamlined, the incredible variety within the collection kept the audience guessing.

The next time I have a black-tie affair to attend (hey, you never know!), I’ll definitely look up these two talented designers.
