Sachika Fall 2010

Twin Designers To-Tam & To-Nya Ton-Nu presented their luxurious womenswear Fall 2010 collection, which also included their new line, TUX for men  which consisted of basic Supima cotton tees. This show was a benefit for Minds Matter, a non-profit organization which held their 9th Annual Spring Soiree last night at M2 Ultra Lounge. Their mission is to transform the lives of accomplished high school students from low-income families by preparing them for college success.

Sachika presented different silhouettes of jersey, rayon, velour, silk, satin, and cotton. The color palette consisted of dark hues such as black, grey, burgundy, purple, and navy. The men’s collection was all white, uniquely constructed tees. As finalists of the Supima Design competition on January 19th, they received positive feedback on their t-shirt collection.
Men love the comfort of a t-shirt but it is a piece that is more suitable for casual occasions. We wanted to revamp that basic tee into a fashionable, comfortable  and more formal piece – that everyday multi-purpose t-shirt.

The twins are mainly known for their sexy dresses, and one standout was the form fitting dress with a plunging neckline.

Sachika will be showing at the midwest Fashion week in Indiana on March 20th, Brooklyn Fashion Week on April 11th, and San Francisco on May 1st.

Tibi Fall 2010

Designer Amy Smilovic was inspired by the photographs of Peter Beard. Her “masculine meets feminine” collection entailed draping paired with structure and rich neutral colors with contrasting brights.

Tibi’s fashion show consisted of 42 looks of balanced opposites and detailed ensembles. Colorful vivid prints and cute feminine wearable pieces were mostly accessorized with brown leather belts. Models sauntered down the runway with bouncy curly hair, most of them wearing burgundy or gray tights.

Some of the key pieces included a lieutenant coat in artillery suede and chocolate leather, a chiffon blouse paired with a suede pant, a bodysuit  with a silk pant, a wool jersey dress, a sweater coat, a maxi skirt with a bodysuit, a leather short with chiffon tank, a beaded strapless bodice dress, and a lingerie corset top.

It’s all about tee layering-a glam bustier was layered over a sheer long sleeve tee, a strapless dress paired with a tee, a chiffon draped dress with a tee, and a sweet heart neckline dress with long sleeved tee.

This season’s Tibi Fall 2010 collection was feminine, stylish, and top notch with wearable pieces for any occasion. —Jenny Mar
