Stunning STEiNUNN

This afternoon, Icelandic designer STEiNUNN presented a collection of intricately detailed, super luxurious pieces inspired by Icelandic geographical formations.   Having worked previously as a designer under Tom Ford at Gucci, and as Design Director at La Perla, Steinunn Sigurd definitely caters to a well-heeled uptown clientele.  Nonetheless, she sets herself apart from your typical Madison Avenue fare with couture like hand detailing, and there were a fair share of garments that would have many a downtown girl swooning with desire.

The entire presentation was set up at F.I.T. by James Gilespie, with a mix of mannequins and models.
