Reyes sent out an army of dresses in a flurry of colors, patterns, and textures borrowed from traditional Himalayan garbkaleidoscope prints, cloud prints, and animal prints in silver, violet, emerald, and more. What many of these looks had going for them was this season's structured volume. Padded cocoon coats looked as if they could hold their own on Everest. A lightly quilted mod silver minidress formed a neat little cylinder around the body.
Moving on to movie-star dresses, Reyes impressed with a silver wrapped-and-pleated number and a gold-sequined column trimmed in black chiffon. Shirting-stripe dresses, on the other hand, felt out of place among all the rich colors and patterns. Still, we'd wager that Reyes, in current form, will enjoy another big awards show moment soon.
