Enough with harsh military-and-leather looks. Three designers show the softer side of fall, and it's a thing of beauty.
It seemed only fitting that opera great Renée Fleming [http: /dallas.culturemap.com/newsdetail/arts-dallas-symphony-orchestra-season-2013-renee-fleming-jfk-memorial-concert/] was in the audience as Douglas Hannant [http://douglashannant.com/] created a concert-like setting for his fall 2013 collection in the wood-paneled Baryshnikov Arts Center. Pianist David Aladashvili [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nj7VxPI2IYQ]played an intense classical sonata on a big baby grand as models walked by in jewel-tone sheaths and suits and exquisitely draped evening gowns. Pictured here: Douglas Hannant silver/black Lurex and silk draped dress.
