For a seasoned fashion editor, almost nothing is more gratifying than witnessing a true 'fashion moment' and that is what occurred when Jasmin Shokrian showed here in New York for the first time. This Iranian born California native (who lives and works in Los Angeles) quietly came to town, showed without much (or any) hype, fanfare, or pre show press. She also presented her collection over the weekend- along with lesser known names and independent designers, at an offsite location away from the Tents. But she grabbed our attention nonetheless.

Her small, well edited collection of artfully conceived, beautifully serene, low-keyed, intellectual separates and dresses which wrap, drape, cocoon, and fall gracefully, in a neutral color palette of black, navy, white, and tan, had a vibe calling to mind the work of legendary Japanese innovators. Her training as a sculptor was evident in her sculpted pieces, many of which were cut asymmetrically and off kilter. Almost everthing wasl just above the knee and while Shokrian utilized draping for movement, this can hardly be considered a line marked by overwhelming volume.  There were no accessories, no hats, no gloves, and the only shoe shown was an innocent  round toed ankle strap flat in black or nude leather. It's obvious that her next show, should she decide to come back to New York, will be considered a 'must see'
