Last season’s Bill Blass show was a full-sized Fashion Week Runway Show tent extravaganza . This season, Bill Blass chose to take it down a notch, and host a presentation in the 42nd Street Library. Trays of wine and water were passed around, as guests scrutinized two back to back “tableaux” of models, standing in two rows, occasionally shifting position as requested by photographers. There were lights, and there was background music, but what made this presentation great (in my opinion) was the ability of the viewers to walk around at will, looking at the dresses from different angles, and for as long as required to understand the clothes.
