Designer Motonari Ono put his models to work this season — not only did they walk the runway, they did so carrying mannequin torsos they proceeded to hang on a rail the length of the runway. Ono’s girls — at least those doing the carrying — wore short, peplum-adorned floral dresses while the mannequins sported a romantic array of frocks replete with ruffles and lacy trim. Only the last part of the show reverted to a more traditional garment with the models actually, well, modeling. Dusty rose and champagne hues dominated but there were some jolts of bright red in a few saucy numbers.
