Basler’s runway debut was last season’s cause celebre, as the once-staid women’s wear line went all out for sequins, HotPants and miniskirts instead of its signature tailored attire.

The result was a “Dallas” and “Dynasty” worthy array of over-the-top ball gowns, bejeweled ski looks, body-hugging sheaths, leggings and bodysuits, a bevy of sequins, Lurex, fur and even peacock feathers, all perched on pointy ankle boots with sky-high metallic stiletto heels.
