The runway was full of eveningwear, including a black strapless lace gown with tiers of strategically placed chiffon covered in beads, and a one-shoulder copper metallic gown with a draped bodice, both of which Valvo said he thought were red-carpet worthy.
"Last fall it was very minimal," Valvo said after the show. "I'm feeling a little more hopeful right now and I think the collection reflects that. I thought it should be a little more grand, more regal. I wanted volume. I didn't want to be afraid."
