This night ended with a stellar presentation by Skingraft. Johnny Cota, Cassidy Haley, and Katie Kay are the creative force behind this edgy underground collection. Having made its debut at Fashion Week in March 2009 Skingraft's clothing blends raw underground fashion with high-end couture. The show kicked of with a performance-art dance piece. Inspired by Amelia Earhart the collection featured aviator caps and leather harnesses. Continuing with the theme, one model came down the catwalk wearing a beautiful grey strapless dress with a full length tiered skirt and a fake bird on her shoulder. I have to say that the attention to detail was amazing, especially on the blue leather vest, the leather jackets, and military inspired coats. Another great piece was a little cocktail dress that sported a black & white leather corset and ruffle tiered skirt. However, nothing was quite as spectacular as the Alexander McQueen inspired grand finale dress. This dramatic Victorian inspired piece was adorned with a spiked leather vest, and the model marched slowly down the runway so we could all bask in its beauty.
