Fashion Ledge - Rosita & Di Sarno
Illusions of Capri
Spring/Summer 2005

The divinity and extraordinary allure of the isle of Capri has alas been captured for all to witness in Rosita & DiSarno's Summer 2005 Collection. The vision for the seasons theme came while the two designers were yachting along the southwest coast of Capri. Carmine DiSarno exclaimed "It was the reflection of the sunset on the water and sand that looked so intense. The energy of the colors and elegance of Capri inspired our Spring/Summer 2005 collection."

Rosita & DiSarno are known for their sensuous and luxurious designs. That element of chic flows effervescently with the socialites of the world as they grace the streets and clubs of Capri. This collection is flavored with subtle fabrications that elude the essence of the isle. The delicacy of georgette, chiffon, and crepe fabrications meet vibrant sun-kissed hues. Silhouettes mimic the impetuous movements of the sea with asymmetric lines that contour a woman's body. A tense palette of turquoise, yellow, and fuchsia are infused amongst crisp white.

Formerly under the Raika.D label, Rosita & DiSarno combine elements of Italian haute couture with pret a porter to fabricate designs for a bold and brazen persona. The company's third season showing in New York, Rosita & DiSarno will be presented for its first time under the new label. Illusions of Capri ultimately reflects the beauty and spirit of the isle and is sure to make an eternal impression.

While under the Raika.D label, DiSarno was able to entice celebrities to wear his fashion. Celebs spotted include Victoria Gotti, Nicky Hilton, Paris Hilton, Kathrine Narducci, Deborah Roberts, Tonya Pinkins, Tami Farrell, and Jamie Lynn Discala.
