Vivienne Tam saved the best for last, literally. Her fall runway — inspired by the legendary Mogao caves in the Dunhuang region of China — started off with perhaps a bit too many details in her quest to exude the richness and colors of the art found in the historic sites.

For example, an appliqué navy blouse over a green lace pencil skirt with a navy string belt was accessorized with a Mongolian mint scarf and printed legwear — which distracted from the beauty of each piece.

But as the show progressed, things toned down and some looks could be appreciated at first glance, such as a beautiful red lace illusion long-sleeve dress and a black lace long-sleeve blouse with black culottes.
