Tapping into how women want to dress, the designer showed impeccably-tailored military-inspired outerwear, chic dress-up-or-down separates, silk cocktail dresses with strategically sexy cutouts and slits, and effortlessly-cool gowns we can easily see on Gurung’s muse, Zoe Saldana. The accessories included fall’s soon-to-be must have shoe—a thigh-high gladiator boot with buckles snaking up the leg, designed just for the show by Cesare CasadeiSee our favorite looks in the gallery!
