Celebrity Stylist and Designer Kithe Brewster presented his Fall 2013 Collection on Valentine’s Day, with an intimate show at his private studio in the garment industry. I felt fortunate to be part of the select group who experienced the myriad of show-stopping dresses and flowing gowns in exotic materials. The looks were lighthearted and sexy. Skin flashed, but in unexpected and playful ways, such as high slits in the back of gowns.

Mr. Brewster was particularly influenced by a 2011 trip to Uzbekistan where he attended Art Week in Tashkent as a guest of Gulnara Karimova for Style.Uz. He not only got a rare glimpse of the Uzbek art and fashion world, but also hosted his own master class, where he talked about the challenges of working with famous actresses, singers and top models. While he was there, he saw many unique and beautiful Uzbek fabrics and intricate gold embroidery which he purchased and used for this current collection.

One of the Uzbek fabrics was a bright teal floral silk fabric which was cut as a burqa and also as a gown. An interesting piece was a beautiful black dress, which seemed military inspired with a shield-like structure, embellished with a bold golden pattern reminiscent of a royal coat of arms. Producer and Co-CEO of The Halcyon Company and Tara Subkoff of Imitation were the grand finale, looking golden in their respective outfits as they walked the runway. Guests at the show included Atlanta Real House Wife, Cynthia Bailey, designer Zang Toi, and Constance White.
