First, look at this month’s Designer Flash which features the sensational designs of Oscar de la Renta. If you don’t already know it, they will make you realize that you don’t need to be walking a scarlet runner to have your own red carpet moment.
The reason why we chose Dennis Basso as our Designer Spotlight this December is because Basso doesn’t care about bending to slouching trends. He still believes in dressing to make an entrance, that turning heads in your direction is too much of a rush to ever be considered old-fashioned, while insisting that the seductive and uplifting resonance of glamour is as powerful today as ever. Basso claims in his unmistakably gravelly, sonorously bass voice “After thirty-five years in this business, I can say with no apology, that every woman I’ve ever met wants to look pretty. What’s wrong with that, especially since every woman can achieve it, because as the great Vogue editor Diana Vreeland once said, you don’t have to be beautiful to be ravishing.”
