J. Mendel - New York Spring 2009
(NEW YORK) On Thursday afternoon, Gilles Mendel presented his Spring 2009 collection at the Chelsea Art Museum. Fusing function and fantasy, Mendel showed off his ethereal collection of stunning gowns, leather dresses and fur accents. Ivanka Trump added glitz to the glam with ornate jeweled hair clips from her collection. "This is my first show all week and it's well worth it; look how gorgeous the girls modeling my stuff are," said Trump. This season, Mendel brought the drama of a plush garden in full bloom to life--with a glass of Dom Perignon for good measure.
