On Friday September 12th at 5:00 p.m. in the Salon at Bryant Park, as some of the exhibitors were already closing down their exhibits in the main lobby, Omnialuo, the line designed by super-talented Chinese designer Zheng Luo, was unveiled in a premier runway show. The show began as a blizzard of animated cherry blossoms floated onto the stage (along with some real, silken petals). If this wasn’t breathtaking enough, the collection was so beautiful and unique the audience got up to cheer at the finale — a very rare occurrence during Fashion Week. You could really feel the excitement in the room. Those in the audience agreed: this show was one of the best….saved for last!
