Modern Romance: Black Tie

Paris is my absolute favorite city in the world and a constant source of inspiration for me —- it seems like there is something extraordinary around every corner!  Here are some pictures from my travels to Paris of modern, feminine beauty which caught my eye.   I love the Pyramide du Louvre —- its classic, romantic architecture and clean, sharp details.  I often referenced this while designing the Black Tie Collection, strived to achieve that balance of beauty, grace and romanticism with a modern edge.  

With Black Tie, I designed the silhouettes modern and added details elaborate and intricate—working with fabrics like lace, leather, chiffon and embellishments including tiger’s eye pearls, sequins and nailheads.  It was a dream come true to be able to let go creatively and design some couture-like pieces for the woman with an elevated taste yet who lives in the contemporary world.  I hope you enjoy these pieces and have a fantastic time in them.  xx rt
