Guests included top editors, stylists, buyers and fashion influencers who attended the preview over light brunch and bellinis. The intimate setting of the Versailles Suite allowed guests to interact with the models up close and personal to get a feel of the line's materials and get a close-up of the intricate complexity of the designs.
Bella Linea’s introductory presentation included 17 looks with interchangeable pieces that will debut in boutiques and department stores for Fall 2013. The line is geared towards the sophisticated career woman who values style as well as fashion.
Key looks included feminine tops that are easily paired with a pencil skirt or fitted blazer and modest dresses that can translate seamlessly from office to evening. The collection is the fusion of sophistication, allure and modern practicality. Bella Linea (whose literal translation means "beautiful waistline") was designed with integrated contouring garments for a smooth, slimming look.
