Silverstain’s collection features bold lines, angles and solid primary colors, yet each look is softened by a neutral color pallet.  He drew his inspiration from Montreal, Canada’s, 1697 World Fair, which featured architectural, cultural and symbolic elements, such as flags from multiple countries around the world. Silverstain’s appreciation for culture and style is intermingled with his undeniable flair for simple pieces that make bold statements. The symbolism and use of textiles in his pieces were thoughtful and diverse, clearly showing his refined designer’s-eye.

The show was sponsored by label M, Aveda, Kiss, and Hangar 1 Vodka.
