The former Project Runway contestant chose to showcase her collection, which was dominated by svelte cocktail dresses and leather detailing at Gallery Nine in SOHO.
Althea’s presentation, which was covered by Elle girl, showcased 12 looks from her Fall 2011 collection.
Harper’s inspiration was the glamorous movie stars of the 40s & 50s but with an added dose of power and strength. “I was so inspired by these women that I wanted to take them out of this victim role and make them into the women I felt they were,” Althea explained.
