The Cinq à Sept Spring 2020 collection embodies the parallels between the culture, style and attitude of the 1970s and that of today. A sense of wonder surrounds the collection illustrated by the astrological inspired embroideries, star jacquard and Swirling Plume print. The Psychedelic Paisley print is modernized in a hammered satin fabric updated in fresh and feminine silhouettes. The flower power inspired Daisy Chain print shows up in both a “mod” suit and ultra-feminine dress. Hand-crocheted knits, high-waisted bellbottoms and statement making collars bring forward nostalgic memories of dancing the night away and the (ongoing) fight for peace and love.

Mira Zwillinger presented her latest bridal collection at Union West in Chelsea, New York, on April 11, 2019. The mother-daughter design team (Mira and Lihi Zwillinger) debuted their 2020 collection – called Make A Wish –of effortlessly feminine silhouettes and featherweight materials for their 5th New York Bridal Week show.
The Make a Wish collection showcased Zwillinger’s innovative use of 3D printing technology, which allows her to hand-draw stunningly intricate embellishments directly onto the Belgian tulle, silk organza, French and Italian lace, and polished gazar that dominate the collection. Traditional ornamentation in pearls, Swarovski crystals, high-shine and matte sequins, and hand-stitched embroidery also made their mark and blended seamlessly with the 3D printing techniques, creating a modern collection with timeless elegance.
The runway collection of 29 looks included 25 floor-length gowns, many of which incorporated voluminous, whisper-thin skirts lending an airy, ballroom feel to the collection. Other designs opted for high necklines and low-backed bodices with seemingly weightless, ethereal transparent capes. Four mini-length bridal dresses were also incorporated for an avant-garde and edgy alternative.
Mira Zwillinger founded her fashion house in 2010, opening a discrete atelier for discerning ladies in Tel Aviv. In 2015, her daughter, Lihi Zwillinger, joined her in establishing their international luxury evening and bridal wear design firm which became one of the most sought after bridal fashion houses in Europe. In the United States, Mira Zwillinger designs are carried by retailers including Mark Ingram, Moda Operandi and Saks Fifth Avenue. The designers live, work and produce in Tel Aviv.

On Monday, February 11th, at Cipriani’s 42nd Street, Dennis Basso debuted its Fall/Winter 2019 collection at New York Fashion Week.
The inspiration for this collection is the “New York City Girl.” I think women around the world all have a desire to be a New York City woman. This allows her to experiment with fashion from high to low with a feeling of freedom, strength, and independence. The original New York City girl is our own statue of liberty that represents this woman from casual days to gala evenings. Our New York City woman never allows the clothes to wear here; she wears the clothes.
The silhouettes include haberdashery coats and jackets with feminine touches. Fabrics include cashmere, fox, sable, mink, chinchilla, shearling, dutchess satin, wool jacquard, mohair, and faux fur. After-five dresses and evening gowns have hand embellished flowers, beaded embroidery, animal print, metallic finishes, feathers, and hand pleating. Classic silhouettes include form-fitting gowns and strapless bodices with ball gown skirts. The color palette for this season is daffodil, café, aubergine, faded pink, and rose gold.
“My vision for my New York City girl is for her to select pieces from the collection, experiment, have fun, and enjoy her fashion freedom.”
On Tuesday, February 12 The Blonds blazed back into NYFW with their signature addiction to glamour and appetite for luxury with “THE WORLD IS BLOND.”
