Instilla by Valentina Oppezzo
The 80s never looked so great.
Instilla by Valentina Oppezzo opened day three of StyleWeek by channeling one of the most recognized periods of all time – the 80s. Her modern interpretation which was chic and playful, radiated from every aspect of her show. From the clothes, music, accessories, and makeup, all supported an eco-friendly line that fused both the 80s and 2015/2016.
Oppezzo’s designs had something for everyone. Whether it was a shirt with a clever message, or a transparent and red high-low skirt, they all had personality. The numerous patterns on the runway were lively and are excellent to wear around town this spring.
And we can’t forget about the accessories; there is nothing like a bag to tie an outfit together!

Eveningwear never looked so glamorous.
From the first look till the very last, By Jeffrey Dickerson took the runway to exquisite eveningwear. With a sense of classic glamour with a modern flare, his designs left the audience astonished at his creations.
The details in the dresses whether long or short, are marvelous as they made additional shapes within the design. Instead of always manipulating the neckline on the front of a dress, Dickerson tinkered with the back. Several dresses and tops had an interesting presentation in the back that highlighted the model’s back. Additionally, a few garments displayed deep necklines that were not only sexy but tastefully and polished for an evening event.
I must add that Dickerson’s last look was absolute divine!

Battle Designs by Earl Battle
Closing night three with an edge!
The final show of night three was Battle Designs by Earl Battle. Battle evoked rock and roll as his models wore edgy garments down the runway. Not only did he design garments for the ladies, but he added three looks for the males. It was a nice surprise to see the reaction of the audience as menswear debuted for the first time during the week.
Battle’s numerous designs offered the audience a chance to see his many sides of creativity. One such design, was a floor length dress that had an asymmetrical sweetheart neckline top which was 3/4th black and pink and 1/4th black and white. He also showed a metallic gray jumpsuit with flared legs that kept the excitement of the show.
Besides his delightful collection, Battle also got the crowd on their feet by doing his famous split on the runway!
