With a packed house including attendees Mario Sorrenti and Leigh Lezark, the designer unveiled a collection that was sexy, shiny and sleek, from the body-hugging dresses to the skin-tight tall boots and the models' slicked-back 'dos.

Bondage features including a lattice-work style chest piece, corset details at the waist and cutaways at the ribcage and along the back merged ladylike and S&M in a most delightful way. Select pieces--a cropped motorcycle jacket, relaxed trousers, a textured cardigan and dresses with movement in the skirt--were a nice departure from the second-skin silhouette. A white-hot, floor-grazing gown with a cutaway back closed the show, taking the iconic bandage dress to new lengths.
