Anait Bian Fall/Winter 2007

French-American designer Anait Bian showcased her Fall/Winter 2007 collection in a High Tea presentation at the Hotel Plaza Athènèe. Models donned the designer's sophisticated, form fitting lines - skirt and pant suits and romantic dresses.

Guests and fans of the designer including Lydia Hearst, Olivia Palermo, Alison Minton, A Fashionable Life's Co-hosts Jayne Chase and Jennifer Goodkind, Mike Latham, Luigi Tadini, Melissa Berkelhammer, Alice Judelson, Michelle Gerber-Klein, Emma Snowdon-Jones, Jamie Korey and Kathleen Giordano admired the collection's twist on the idea of “basic black.”

Anait's color palette infused matte black silk crepe and taffeta with silk black velvet and included golden ochre, cayenne red, heather green and aquamarine. Socialite and model Lydia Hearst was so impressed that she placed an order for her favorite dress, a black silk velvet baby doll dress with black silk satin pantaloons, at the presentation. Guests at the presentation left with gifts from P.I.N.K vodka, Clive Christian and Tracy Smith's SalonTEA.
