Opened by Shamcey Supsup and closed by Venus Raj, Cherry Samuya Veric's Swank + Swag was in all ways fit for royalty. With live violinists playing in the background, a palette ruled by black and gold for a contrast of monochromes, and a weaving together of tulle and intricate lacework, it was all Queen Elizabeth I--sans the tiaras. It was instead, spunked up by thigh-high boots and snapbacks that added a welcome swag to the otherwise forgotten era.
