Fashion Week: ThreeAsFour

As expected, ThreeAsFour's Spring 2008 collection doesn't disappoint. Designers Gabi, Adi and Ange continued their aesthetics in flowing silhouettes and created pieces that are works of arts in themselves. The collection reflects a mystic femininity that makes ThreeAsFour one of the most watched designers -- and a CFDA/Vogue fashion fund finalists -- of this season.

Cocktail dresses came in layers of tulle that are finished with one-shoulder designs and flowing, circular seams. Pantsuits are long and tailored in the jacket and tapered in the leg, or matched with high-waisted shorts.

The palette this season is soft with hints of metallic and bright colors such as yellow and fuchsia. Something apart from their usual design is the introduction of the organza rosettes splashed on a yellow cocktail dress. It channels a Rodarte-like aesthetic that borders on couture grade craftsmanship.

It will be interesting to see how their success will translate for this downtown designer label - that with the introduction of the CFDA fame, will transcend them from obscurity to establishment.
