Dennis Basso Unveiling Daytime Ready-to-Wear in 35th Anniversary Collection
From WWD - February 8, 2018

In tandem with the 35th anniversary of his eponymous label, Dennis Basso will introduce his first daytime ready-to-wear collection at his runway show Monday at St. Bartholomews Church during New York Fashion Week.

Weve found that as the world changes and rearranges, women are not getting as dressed up anymore, observed Basso, who maintains a fully vertical 30,000-square-foot atelier in Long Island City, N.Y. Theyre wearing daytime clothes in the evening mixed with evening pieces and its evolved to a whole different level.

Basso, who for years has made casual ready-to-wear pieces available at a lesser price point to customers of his QVC line, has called this latest collection sporty, but he asserts he wont be producing high-end jogging suitsat least not yet.

Were making beautiful leather skirts, cashmere jackets and flannel with some embroidery, continued Basso. When I started out in 1983 nobody would ever wear a sparkle or hanging earrings in the afternoon. Thats all changed. Today everyone is mixing everything up and were able to incorporate this on the runway with, of course, the big gorgeous furs and eveningwear the Dennis Basso brand has been known for.
