Shop Talk | Silhouettes and Profiles

The designers behind Silhouettes and Profiles made “The Kira” with leftover metallic lace from an Oscar de la Renta collection.

Since I wear only vintage clothes, I spend a lot of time at Silhouettes and Profiles. The brilliant Irene Tcherniakhovsky has been perfecting my wardrobe there for the last 10 years. Recently I was bringing in a pile of repairs and I noticed this dress on display. Assuming it belonged to a customer, I checked for a label, but Irene told me that she and her co-worker, Anna Drugovahad, designed the dress. It’s called “The Kira” — black lace with a slightly empire waist and a wide grosgrain ribbon that subtly shapes the garment and makes it flattering to every figure. It’s the perfect party dress. It comes in four different fabrics, including a metallic lace left over from an Oscar de la Renta collection, and the quality is on the level of couture. At $500 dollars, “The Kira” is the best dress I have seen in a long time. It almost looks vintage.

I loved this dress when I first saw it yesterday! OMG. Such a great new collection you have added Cherie. And congrats on the great press to both of you.

I can't seem to find it on the NY Time blog though. Got a link?
