Slowik took his first steps toward that lofty objective by reworking some Blass favorites: The show opened with a limpid white suit and a cotton and chiffon dress that were both very promising. There were also a couple of comfortably chic masculine suits with feminine accents like visible hints of the jackets' lining on the lapel. Having said that, Slowik still has quite a way to go. His kimono dresses were not particularly flattering; large orchid prints on a suit and dress looked overdone; and the sequined evening looks were too long and shapeless for a young girl, and too decorated for a more mature client. In short, many of the clothes were neither here nor there.
