During this Saturday's opening, we are thrilled to be presenting two runway shows.  The first will showcase the new collection by llustrator and designer Connie Lim entitled Noir drawing inspiration from her love of the color black. The entire line is handmade and explores the masculine vs. feminine silouette. The volumnious forms play on the ideal muscular masculine physique which in turn are created by soft, sheer and billowy organza fabric retaining inherent feminine characteristics.

The artist currently works in Los Angeles. She has studied at Art Center, LA Trade Tech and Central Saint Martins in London where she will be returning by year's end. Lim's designs are directly inspired by her illustrations...creating art that becomes fashion. Her love of fashion illustration led her to design. Alexander Mcqueen and Gareth Pugh are her inspiration. Her goal is to create work that is exciting and bold stating in an interview with Dazed Digital "My work is my relief, my freedom of creative thought, basically, the unseen part of myself. On paper, it comes down to dark lustrous women who are confident and dangerous."  In addition to the clothing line, Lim has also contributed two original works...each published in Dazed & Confused magazine.

***Connie Lim's collection will be presented at 8:00 pm
