tibi Fall 2009 Collection

This show was paced beautifully. By the end I was fully desiring the "Karam Paisleys," "Firebird Prints," and fur mitts for which, sadly, there is no name on the program. I protest: if you send a hybrid, fur oven mitt/boxing glove down the runway, I want a name.

Karam paisley dress w/ fox vest, and the mitts w/ gorgeous teal sheath.

Prettiest yellow in town. I admit I'm wary of those black leggings, but they do keep the look modern.

"Doystoevsky Bloom" long dress, firebird print beaded gown, "Pasha" beaded gown

Are not tibi's prints lust-worthy? I thought this collection, inspired by the Russian fairytale "The Tale of the Firebird," was a great interpretation of classic Russian style. Not too Tsarina or Catherine the Great, but just exotic enough to be interesting. Here is finale video which shows the colors much better than my soon-to-be-replaced camera.

I want one of those dresses so I can wear it while running barefoot through the forest. Sigh.
