"With more than 20 years of experience designing luxuriously dyed evening and event wear, my new casual wear collection combines easy-to-wear shapes with unusual fabrics and a minimalist, restrained use of surface design. "

Steve Sells focuses on shapes that are flattering and easy to wear. His styles are casual yet sophisticated, with a modern, architectural interpretation of classic Japanese shapes. These shapes are combined with an array of unusual fabrics with unique weave structures sourced from around the world—everything from highly textured Japanese cottons to Italian silk blends and Belgian linens.  Fabrics for evening wear focus on luxurious silks... chiffon, charmeuse and organza, along with hand-etched burnout satin and velvets... in flowing shapes that skim the body.

Sells further enhances his pieces with a restrained use of surface design. All of the patterned fabrics on his garments are produced by hand in his Denver studio. Using various Japanese Shibori processes, along with hand painting and ombre dyeing, he individually dyes each garment one at a time. The resulting combinations of shape, texture, and pattern create a unique piece of wearable art.

The collection is available in upscale boutiques across the United States, from Beverly Hills to Madison Avenue.

Designer Steve Sells returns to (the Runway) with a much anticipated collection of luxurious evening-wear and sophisticated dye work.
