Korto designed for Sweetie. Her concept, "an animal in heat," was realized as a red sequined cocktail dress with an empire waisted, detachable skirt in duchesse satin. Sweetie isn't diminutive, and Korto mitigated her size with deft thoughtfulness and consideration. The proportions of the pieces of the look all worked beautifully and harmoniously, and the detachable skirt made for a dramatic reveal. And to top things off, Sweetie really worked it on the runway!
