By Christine Suppes

Dominique Sirop is master of tucks, folds and draping. But he is a god of the diaphanous. In his hands, the sheerest silk chiffon becomes the body and wings of an angel. He creates beautiful tailored trouser suits, accented this season with brown and black leather belts a la Ralph Lauren. But there the resemblance stops. His jackets wrap the body as they maintain the sharp tailored line. A charcoal silk jacket with quarter inch stitched swirls throughout the body and the sleeves presented us with the daytime couture moment. The evening gowns are light and dreamy. Once in a while, Mr. Sirop utilizes a long semi-precious stone necklace to anchor his airiness. His beaded silk tunic, shown with a casual brown leather belt and a long strand of rough cut medium sized chrysoprase had the right look for a Los Angeles premiere or cocktail on a terrace in Saint Remy. Mr. Sirop dresses Queen Rania of Jordan. Need we say more?
