Dennis Basso‘s show vibrated, appropriately enough, with pulsing loud bass as his statuesque models showed postcard-motif evening dresses and the sumptuous furs that have made him a favorite of the uptown set.  From Nina Griscom and Nicky Hilton Rothschild and her sister Paris Hilton, they came out to cheer their homie.  Also in the audience, cookbook author and host-with-the-most Alex Hitz, who took our Fall Winter 2017 fashion quiz.

How would you improve fashion week?


Raise the temperature!  It’s too cold!


What does fashion say about America right now?


In the face of adversity and a divided country, this is a place to take a breath and dream a bit.  We can still dream.
