Celebrity fashion designers To-Tam and To-Nya Sachika also known as "The Real Twins of NYC" launched their Fall/Winter 2012 collection. The crowd roared with whistles, "oohs," and "ahs." The collection was most definitely a sight to see!
As the unveiling of IVANKA: "If we ever meet again" began, there was a short film directed by Matias Desiderio. This short film introduced the character of Ivanka, a fictional secret agent-like character whom delves you into a world of action. The runway models each represented a scene of Ivanka's action-packed world thus giving the audience a feel for this character the Sachika twins created. Ivanka is sexy, sultry, beautiful, elegant, strong, and this; friends is exactly what the collection upheld!
Each piece from the various Ivanka scenes were portrayed and felt through the different types of materials and luxurious fabrics. It has been confirmed by the real twins themselves, they used "a combination of wool crepe, leather, faux fur, silk chiffon & charmeuse, delicate lace, suede among other luxurious fabrics to create their signature cocktail dresses, jackets, and separates." The material and fabrics described and personified Ivanka that she is a living breathing being. Somewhere in the midst of all the types of Ivanka's, every woman has Ivanka's ability and can look sexy while they're at it.
There were many other great surprises, Leila Lopes, Miss Universe of 2011 walked the runway as well as Alyssa Campanella Miss USA of 2011. Michael Antonio provided the shoes that graced the runway while perfecting each ensemble. The beautiful jewels that were featured in the show were by Sequin and the custom made hats (oh the custom made hats... they were superb!) were designed by Anthony Maxwell.
