:: Spotlight :: Little Joe NY hits RAFW

By: Leena Thompson

Gail Elliott marked the kickoff to a season that retailers and editors have all but officially accepted as full-fledged. This year’s collection ‘RESORT’ was a stand out for ready to wear garments. A small film played as the opening, showing Gail, her friends and husband Joe enjoying fun times during the 80’s summer season. Quintessential were the production behind it.

Gail’s best friend stunning international model Yasmin Le Bon opened the show. The gorgeous beauty has not aged and took over the runway with utter professionalism and showed she enjoyed her comeback on the runway. Front row guests included Natalie Gruzlewski, Laura Csortan, Erika Heynatz,
Kate Waterhouse and Kristie Clements.

Seventies inspired denim shirts and shorts, ankle cowboy boots, belts, leather pants and shorts, and haute bohemian silk peasant blouses and flowing tiered dresses were the highlight. Lace and cut out suede also made entrances with contrasting colour underneath. The collection displayed a style of freedom, fun and let the good times roll. The models were perfect role models and to end the show Yasmin Le bon and Gail Elliott walked out hand in hand and did their own runway thankyou. A huge retail love will be the guiding force for this collection. What this season is really about is not so much breaking the mold as delivering a vision of the good life. A high praise must be made to a wonderful collection.

After the collection Gail held a luncheon to celebrate Yasmin’s stay and her ‘Resort’ collection. Be sure to visit a Little Joe NY Store in your area for that fun summer outfit this season.
