Fashion Week Diaries: Joanna Mastroianni Welcomes Us With Champagne And No Line

February 19, 2009 by Rebekah

One of several designers who opted out of the Bryant Park tents this season, Joanna Mastroianni held her Fall 2009 presentation in her showroom. Which meant, in short, no lines, passed champagne, and the opportunity to take decent photos of the clothes.

It actually felt more like a photo shoot than a fashion show, with photographers directing the models from four feet away. And look! One model even posed just for me!

Many of the pieces, shapely, well-structured dresses with waist-defining details, are actually very wearable. If you can figure out where to buy them, I’ll give you a gluten-free cookie.

Since there is apparently nowhere to purchase these clothes, we suggest a similarly silhouetted dress. This black Calvin Klein number ($118) has a removable belt that you can switch out for something brighter if you’re feeling colorful. The textured metallic fabric on this Lela Rose dress ($298.50, was $995) is reminiscent of the black fabric on the dress above.

Also: we knew turquoise statement pieces were making a comeback.

The final tally:

Friendly Door People: 2
Usable Photos Taken: 25
Pretty Dresses: Many
Alcohol: Available
