Fashion Soiree at Shangri-La Cortland!
Winter 2005-06 Fashions
"When that 'little black dress' is not enough ... SHANGRILA!"
The designers of Shangri-La are the first to fully employ silk velvet in their haute couture evening wear designs. Until the 1990's most recent velvets were only rayon or acetate based, although velvet was first made from silk in the Middle Ages.
Despite a terrible fire that destroyed our downtown Cortland store, Shangri-La still had its planned for winter collection fashion show thanks to the help of a nearby shop owner and city government.

This masterpiece along with more than

first displayed in our Fashion Soiree,
on 2 April 2005!
