Monique Lhuillier has slowly been growing her ready-to-wear business, and for fall she really hit her stride. This collection was bold and romantic, some of it with a dark edge.

For day, Lhuillier played with structure in a feminine way: A vinyl trenchcoat in a pink tweed, a guipure lace blouse-and-pencil-skirt combo and a sleeveless long vest over gaucho pants were all polished and chic. The moodier moments came via skeletal prints and embroideries and somber colors (black, gray, navy) that Lhuillier balanced with a delicate touch.

For evening, she showed her true potential with beautifully crafted gowns and cocktail dresses. Her LBDs came in an assortment of intricate beadwork and embellishments, while a dramatic high-low gown was done in a pretty petal print.
