Decadent, lush and oh-so-plush — is it any wonder Donna Karan, in an effort to channel a “moody seduction” for fall, featured gowns cut in rich, silky velvet? Here, one such dazzler: an amethyst velvet and silk satin evening dress.

New York designers showed a romantic bent on the runways with sumptuous velvet looks, everything from a chic riding jacket to a brooding gala gown and even a bold, swashbuckling cape.
