Friday the 13th
ushered in yet another resurrection on Sixth
Avenue. The former Limelight proved once again
long-ago house of worship is truly immortal.
Now that Michael Alig has moved his VIP room to
in upstate New York, this Phoenix has risen from
it’s own glittery ashes to become Avalon.
On this particular night we were privileged to
worship at the alter of couturier Sumie Tachibana.
The theme of the
evening was melancholy. Depression never seemed
so alluring. Sumie, a raven haired beauty herself
who could easily grace any runway, has managed
to create a collection that is not only luxurious
but speaks volumes in terms of attitude. According
to her press release: "Each piece is an experience
for the daring buyer with a creative eye, as she
blends the ideas of masculine and feminine costuming
in each of her one-of-a-kind designs."
Sumie brought in
some great talent for the show with Frederic Fekkai
hair stylists Kyle Plishtiyev, Vu Nguyen and Shaeena
Etienne and music mixed by DJ Brian Owen. In addition,
accessories by Trucs Designs perfectly complement
are available at Warp Designs Showroom in Williamsburg,
Brooklyn. You can also view past and present
collections as well as place orders on her website
