West Hollywood, CA, United States (AHN) – Designer Julia Clancey presented her Spring/Summer 2011 collection Sensually Sorbet, on Saturday, Oct. 23 at Palihouse in West Hollywood. A cocktail reception for guests started at 2pm; the fashion show commenced at 4.
Clancey’s collection was inspired by the looking glass, afternoon tea and the rose garden in the book “Alice in Wonderland.” The collection featured frocks and clothing items in a very spring-like color palette of pastels, some reminiscent of candy – peppermint, aqua, watermelon, lemon, lilac and brilliant white – embellished with signature hand embroidered crystals, beads, sequins and sparkles. Softer silhouettes of oversized silk ruffles, full circled tulle skirts paired with asymmetric and plunging necklines, and floor-length, sweeping caftans, and classic silhouetted shifts adorned with heavily encrusted flowers to show the designer’s love of vintage.
Lady Victoria Hervey, Max Ryan (who played Samantha’s Australian lover in “Sex and the City 2,” Scott Elrod from “The Switch,” Lauren Maher from all three “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies, Stephen Bishop of “Moneyball,” Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark and Prince Lorenzo Borghese were all in attendance.
