Up and coming designer Samantha Liistro presented her first fashion collection at the Madison Towers. Ms. Liistro exhibited a high quality collection with very luxurious fabrics like laser cut pony hair, lightweight wools and python. Her palette goes from touches of cream to dark cherries, midnight blues, vibrant opals and rich blacks. The collection was modern and the well structure cuts with asymmetrical lines gave each piece a clean and sexy look that brought to mind Yves Saint Laurent’s designs of the 1980’s a la Grace Jones. ARIALIIS is a brand for a sophisticated and elegant modern woman who appreciates high quality luxury design. This is something that Ms. Liistro understands well having worked for fashion houses such as Oscar de la Renta and Loro Piana.
