Diane von Furstenberg named her collection "Rendezvous" ~ the program notes said, "Glamorous at a moment's notice" and that's that she gave!

Style Notes: The collection used black as a staple but showed a wonderful array of reds, teals, soft dewy pinks, and touches of yellow and aubergine. It was amazingly flowy (read: feminine) without taking you into evening-wear unwillingly; and the bonus were the opera-length gloves featured on several of the models....beautiful and richly colored!

Runway to Walkway: most items were close to the body but not overly snug; all hemlines were workday appropriate; some of the newer style prints may be difficult to wear during the day but most showed 'day to dinner chic' and 'desk to date sophistication' with ease

Overall: not unlike any other of her collections, you'll want to add a piece to your wardrobe, so you can be 'glamorous at a moment's notice'! 8.5/10
