Rubin Singer Fall/Winter 2016

Rubin Singer designs fashion with a capital “F.” He knows that when someone’s paying a lot of money for a dress, they want it all - drama, luxury and high-style. They want to hear gasps. They want all eyes on them. They want to own the room when they enter it. And Singer happily makes that happen.

His Red Carpet styling is eye-poppingly sharp, his color palette luxe, and his fabrics exquisite. "I'm constantly looking for experimentation, and disdain what is easily done. I like to challenge myself and my creative team to continuously create something different and unusual," says Singer in Vogue Italia, bringing to mind designers like Jacqueline de Ribes, Bill Blass, Project Runway’s Christian Siriano and Daniel Esquivel. And while Singer’s name may not be a household word in every zip code, it is bandied about by major celebrities and stylists. Sculpting his gowns in silk

faille, gazar, and organza, Singer creates structure out of softness, and softness out of structure. Black, silver, deep blue and a touch of canary yellow dominated the collection and his dresses appeal to everyone from the aesthete to the ingenue. Among Singer’s notable looks was a bouffant gown in asymmetrical layers of black translucent satin-faced silk organza topped with a sexy barely-there chrome yellow duchess satin bodice. An ensemble described as a teal cashmere coat trimmed with astrakhan over matching panne velvet palazzo pants was breathtakingly elegant. A chartreuse 4-ply silk crepe confection embroidered with shattered glass was jaw-dropping, as if it had come from the mind of MGM designer Adrian for 1939’s The Women.

Rubin Singer is clearly poised for a breakthrough collection that will put his name on everyone’s lips.
