Meet New York based designer - Hilton Hollis at L'Armoire on Wednesday, September 21st.
His stunning Fall 2016 collection, entitled “The Ages of Austria" is inspired by Hilton's recent trip to Vienna. The inspiration is both steeped in the tradition of the Belvedere Castle and Klimt, yet also looks forward to the more modern aspect of Vienna with a nod to the expressionist landmark, Hundertwasserhaus.
