The inspiration: A moonlit Moorish Palace, ornate architectural details and “the mystery of romance and yesteryear.”

The vibe:  Special occasion dresses across the boards with definite red carpet flair – ladylike, feminine but not overly frothy.   A new focus on youthfulness, though there was still stuff for mothers-of-the-bride.

The lust-o-meter:  Terrific laser-cut microsuede sheath mini dresses – knockout in flame and navy.   A grande dame cape featuring crewelwork and embroidery, a lush cobalt strapless gown with hand-beading detail, a black velvet T-shirt over a sparkling embellished tulle and diamond-shaped knit floor-length skirt.

Eh:  An overly ruffled top on a dress kind of read like hair, and a few of the long-sleeved, loose lace jobs were a tad mumsy.

Our take:  Really lovely dresses and gowns overall and a sure shot for the red carpet.
