Behind the Seams: Bill Blass Hits Saks Fifth Avenue

We've seen Peter Som's Fall '08 debut collection for Bill Blass, and I loved it so dearly, I want you to see it again, more close up.

A trunk show was held at the Saks Fifth Avenue in NYC, where the runway creations were brought to buyers and socialites. Notice them in the background, meticulously checking out Som's creations and determining which have the most selling power. The designer also made his first personal appearance to show off the clothes, which were well received. "We loved what Peter shared with us on the runway. I thought it recognized the roots of the Bill Blass that I know. Having a strong Bill Blass is so perfect because we have the customer for it at Saks," said Saks president Ron Frasch.

Speaking of attendees, America's Next Top Model Cycle Nine winner Saleisha Stowers was also a part of the show. Aren't you glad you came behind the seams?
