Sinha and Stanic took on the early-nineties trend by starting their show with a camel coata classic cut, short, belted, and seamed into a bubble below the waist. Skinny pants, cropped jackets, and neat coats followedall still career-friendly, but made for a woman with a bit more oomph. Business agenda covered, they got experimental with tiny skirts with a drape in back, a leather bubble-skirt dress, and an evening group embellished with almost flashy Swarovski chandelier crystals. There were, of course, some clunkers in the mix, but that counts as a sign of health. Young designers need to make mistakes in order to learn, and it's encouraging to see this couple dare to move forward.
