Dennis Basso presented his fall 2014 collection at Lincoln Center for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. The designer sent a calvacade of fur down the runway along with an assortment of Oscar-ready gowns. Among the hits with critics was a hooded lynx fur vest and the ball gowns that looked hand-painted. Basso showed his first collection in 1993.. he's been in business for more than 30 years and knows how to put on a show.

Actress Debra Messing, stylist June Ambrose and singer Mary J Blige were at the show held on one of the coldest weeks of the year.
