ELIE TAHARI (New York) Colourblock Dress

New York designer Elie Tahari knows what women want – in clothes. Discovering that niche between Gap and Armani, Tahari hit it hard – with modern, sophisticated clothing that flatter women who aren’t impossibly proportioned. A feminine take on the season’s huge colourblock trend, this Elie Tahari dress looks smart both entering and exiting.
Simply swap workplace kitten heels for platform heels after hours.

From orphan immigrant, to underground NYC disco designer, to undisputed fashion mogul, Elie Tahari has come a long way. Today, Mr Tahari – who slept on park benches when he first arrived almost penniless in Manhattan in 1971 – commands a $500-million-a-year sportswear empire. Last summer, the man even played fashion Superman as he swooped in to save the day when fellow fashion designer Catherine Malandrino’s company rain into financial straights. Thanks to Tahari, Malandrino is back from the brink to re-invent her label.

Elie Tahari and Catherine Malandrino attend the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards at Alice Tully Hall on 4 June 4, 2012 in New York City.
