From exquisite perfume and cosmetics to silk dresses and embroidered lace capes, iconic fashion designer Anna Sui does it all. Born in Detroit, Sui knew by the time she was four years old that she wanted to become a designer when she grew up, and started making her own clothes while still a child. In 1991, she debuted a women’s clothing at her own show in NYC, paying her runway talent – supermodels Naomi Campbell and Linda Evangelista — in clothing for their strutting services. Many years — and a CFDA Lifetime Achievement Award — later, Sui remains one of the industry’s most surprising and innovative designers, creating luxurious skirts, kimono jackets, and other pieces distinguished by exotic color combinations and distinctive details. Lace skirts, dolman sleeve coats, sporty shift dresses embellished with Peter Pan collars or velvet necklines — you’ll find all these and more in Anna Sui’s collection. Try Sui’s floral-fruity Dolly Girl or vanilla-scented Sui Dreams fragrances for an extra dose of glamour.
Flowing ombre maxis, full floral midis, and more outfit-making pieces spotted on the show.
With your calendar filling up with festive fetes this season, give yourself outfit options in addition to the go-to cocktail dress. Slip into one of these standout tops — rendered in metallic brocade, beaded silk crepe, graphic-print velvet, and ruffled lace — made to pair with sleek tuxedo pants or a flirty pleated skirt.
Chic, versatile pieces you’ll wear everywhere this season.
