Alexandra Long celebrates her “ENIGMA II” collection with a VIP dinner at the iconic Caviar Kaspia photographer James D Kelly

Dear Shaded Viewers,

The other night I had the great pleasure of celebrating Alexandra Long's first collection inspired by espionage during the Second World War. The collection is elegant in a 1940's glamour kind of way with little hidden secrets be it in the lining or the zipper that turns a more austere look into hard core glamour in a Rita Hayworth kind of way. Along with the delicious dinner at Caviar Kaspia there was a high-spirited performance by a live gypsy that had Alexandra and friends, Ellen Von Unwerth, Sascha Lilic, etc. playing the band's tambourine and dancing the night away. The perfect way to end Paris Fashion Week.

Guests included Ellen von Unwerth, Sascha Lilic,  Facehunter, Alexandra Long and her VIP friends.
