NAQADA, by Octavio Carlin



In a suite at The Standard, nineteen sexy dresses and slinky separates were shown to the groovy beats of a live bongo trio, accompanied by tequila shots from the designers native Mexico.  This parade of form-fitted sheaths worked on a single theme of Italian Baroque print silk, paired with contrasting pastel accents.  A youthful interpretation of After 5 dressing showcased tanned bellies and taught hips with flirty fishtails, plunging halter necklines, cutaway capris, and wide tap pants with peek-a-boo side slits.  Fresh-faced models grooved to the beats in bright peacock eye shadow and conveyed the designer's sultry sense of estilo tropical.
