High fashion fuses the art of access with the ingenuity of creative excess, giving us an explosion of riches. Designs devour the senses, from Calvin Klein’s silver puffed-out parka worn over a metallic Michael Kors Collection mini-dress, to a leopard skin suit by Roberto Cavalli and a gold metallic coat from Emanuel Ungaro. Art undresses the scene with a 3-D, red dress by Junya Watanabe and an emerald jersey by Haider Ackermann, to a 70’s inspired silk suit by Gucci, kaleidoscope hose by Balenciaga and crazy cross prints by Prada with golden-winged, spiked heels by Christian Louboutin.

A beautiful blend brings us both ends as Welters combines the character of the past with the illusion of the future.
