Fashion designer Douglas Hannant put on a lively show with 42 looks Wednesday in the Terrace room at The Plaza Hotel for a small group of fashion insiders and away from the madness of Lincoln centre.In his show notes, Hannant said he channeled Shanghai high society in the 1930s for the outfits. He also announced the launch of Douglas Hannant handbags available exclusively at his boutique.
The models wore a lot of colour and patterns, and mostly gowns. They made a statement with extremely teased and crimped hair.
The opening look, worn by stunning model Hannare Blauuboer, was a ivory corded lace blouse over mesh slim pants with a canvas tote. Her bleached blond hair and statement sunglasses made us think that Lady Gaga was going to do the cat walk next.
The show ended with the models walking out to Gaga’s “Born This Way” and then so did our time at Fashion Week.
In the show notes, the designer talks of Pu-Yi, the last emperor of dynastic China. Pu-Yi embraced the life of luxury a little too much and died of an opium addiction
