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.

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.
