Israeli designer Yotam Solomon returned to the Nuni Gallery to show his sophomore collection, marked by tons of texture, cut-outs and geometry in all-natural silks, satins and chiffons, wools and cotton. Unusual color and fabrication combinations included an orange, cream, silver and royal blue knit and satin dress. A former child violin and viola prodigy, 20-year-old Solomon says music inspires everything he does, as well as a love of geometry and algebra. Backstage, he called his fall '08 collection "a celebration of the universe." Solomon also designed the shoes for the show, which incorporate tufts of chiffon and knits as well.
