Designer Tamae Hirokawa decided to forgo a runway this season, instead staging a salon show in a historic school building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the northwestern part of the city. The venue proved appropriate as Hirokawa’s collection had an architectural quality to it: an embroidered geometric pattern appeared on coats and dresses, while a series of silk dresses in striking prints had an art deco vibe. The designer pushed fur in a major way, manipulating it into various textures for coats, shrugs and even boots. There was an ample use of origami pleating on bustier tops and a series of evening dresses that closed the show.
