Exclusive Interview with World Renowned Fashion Designer Dennis Basso at Spring /Summer Show -2024

Had the pleasure of interviewing legendary, World Renowned Fashion Designer Dennis Basso, at his Spring /Summer Show -2024. A little about Dennis Basso:

In 1983, Mr. Basso was ready to launch his own business. He brought a new perspective to designing with fur… treating fur like a fluid fabric; lighter, with more sinuous silhouettes, and bolder in coloration and patterns.

There was consistent press adulation and socially influential women, no matter their generation, sought out a Dennis Basso fur for their wardrobe.

As his business grew, it was a natural evolution for Mr. Basso to design ready-to-wear. With his signature verve and attention to glamorous styling, the distinctive day and evening looks were a perfect complement to the furs.

In 2002, Mr. Basso opened his first freestanding boutique, at the prestigious Little Nell Hotel in Aspen, which was followed by the 2003 opening of his original flagship on Madison Avenue in Manhattan. Dennis Basso collections were also expanding globally, with an in-store boutique at Harrods.

Since 2007, Dennis Basso has been a closely watched presence on the runway at New York Fashion Week, drawing top media, NY tastemakers and Hollywood celebrities. Dennis Basso designs have been prominently seen on screen: worn by both Renee Zellweger and Catherine Zeta-Jones in “Chicago”; by Meryl Streep in “The Devil Wears Prada”, Nicole Kidman in “Nine”, and Charlize Theron in “Snow White and the Huntsman.”

His designs have graced the red carpet on a bevy of celebrities: Hayden Panettiere, Emmy Rossum, Helen Mirren, Tyne Daly, Angela Bassett, Mary J. Blige, Catherine Zeta Jones, Brooke Sheilds, Sarah Rafferty, Naomi Campbell, Stephanie Seymour, Robin Roberts, Katie Couric and Olivia Palermo to name a few.

Mr. Basso believes that women should have access to a quality, sophisticated wardrobe. With that in mind, two decades ago, he embarked on a major collaboration with QVC, presenting faux furs, ready-to-wear, and accessories, and, subsequently, a home collection. Dennis Basso’s most recent brand extension, in 2011, was the launch of an exclusive collection of bridal designs for the esteemed Kleinfeld Bridal salon in New York City.

Last year, Dennis Basso opened a sleek new flagship located at 825 Madison Avenue in a landmark building. The five story townhouse is an expansive 10,500 square feet and presents, in pure Dennis Basso glamour, the designer’s extensive collections of furs, ready-to-wear, and accessories.

Mr. Basso was educated at Catholic University in Washington, D.C. and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. A respected voice and supporter of the fashion industry, he is a long-standing member of the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America. In 2013, Dennis Basso was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the Fashion Institute of Technology in recognition of his talent, vision, and business acumen.

Hundreds of people were in attendance, to view Dennis basso’s Spring/Summer 2024, a couple seating next to me came all the way from Italy, to see his new line, and the wife went on to say, that she had picked a dress one of the models was wearing and will have her husband buy it for her for her anniversary. Dennis Basso, is truly an icon in the fashion world, a brilliant mind who can create anything in the fashion world.

Dennis Basso RTW Spring 2019

Mr Basso.., He talked about toning down his signature embellishments and beading and creating wearable, light, easy clothing for young, vibrant, and very worldly women.

Today his collections are favorites of sophisticated celebrity ladies, whether they be a Martha Stewart or a Mary J. Blige (the former was seated front row and the latter walked the runway with Basso at the end of the show to celebrate her recent partnership with his brand).

Basso’s clothes are also the favorites of a certain echelon of blinged-out ladies who lunch in New York. Some of these glamorous women were in the front row today and many brought their daughters, who were mostly dressed in a logo’d piece from Gucci or Off-White. There were the 2018 swans and their cygnets.

Whether on the shores of the Mediterranean or in classic American resorts, she is confident in her look, creating her unique interpretation of the fashion she wears. This collection takes “our woman” on this amazing journey from sporty and carefree to glamorous evenings.

Pale pinks and baby blues are mixed with red and cream and a statement of black and white for a feminine and chic color palette. A variety of crisp fabrics such as organza, gazaar, and canvas create interesting shape and structure throughout the collection. Summer furs are also incorporated with sable, Russian broadtail, mink, and fox. The collection also includes feather touches and intricate hand embroideries.

World Liberty TV Fashion Team was on hand , at the Backstage, seeing models rehearse , while Mr Basso was making his last rounds , to see everything was alright before his show.
