"When that 'little black dress'

is not enough ...


SHANGRILA!"


NOTE : SHANGRI-LA had another FASHION SHOW, hosted by the new HILTON GARDEN INN of downtown Ithaca, NY. The event took place Thursday, December 1st 2005 at 7:30 PM in the first floor Grand Ballroom.

Until the 1990's most recent velvets produced was only rayon or acetate based, although velvet was first made from silk in the Middle Ages. A few years ago, American trained British designer Jasper Conran revived silk devore fabric, a rayon pile velvet burnt away with acid printing to leave shadows of silk chiffon amid deep velvet pile. This technique, first invented in France at least a century ago and very fashionable in the "roaring twenties" has now made a striking comeback! Devore literally means "to devour" in French. The process uses a chemical gel that eats away (dissolves) cellulose plant fibers (such as cotton, linen, raime, rayon, and viscose) without harming the non-plant silk fibers.


Besides offering a wide range of tranditionally inspired ruanas, amarna shawls (Quechqumitl), and kaftans, designers Sheldon Gosline and You Min are happy to design unique haute couture evening dresses and gowns, such as these from our 2005 Spring Fashion Soiree!


This masterpiece along with more than a dozen other high fashion gowns was displayed in our Fashion Soiree, on 2 April 2005!





We hope you enjoy our fashion show! Ms. Gina Sikora and the other models in our Fashion Soiree have kindly given us permission to post these images. All image rights are reserved.
