Here she emphasizes fashion for evenings out-with adults and children's garments and accessories that are suitable for nights at the opera, parties, or dinner-at-eight. Some 20 projects include a striking paillette-strewn evening halter in DK-weight cashmere, an evening-wear shawl in mohair, silk, and wool, and even an Obi in a shimmering gold or silver metallic.
