Style / Holiday wear that glitters and glows

Beautiful gowns and a modern take of Victorian opulence


This holiday season has a romantic glow, shimmering with bright golden tones and a deep burgundy palette. Vintage accessories give texture to a glistening shoot, from the burnished gold props to the rich tapestry. Buffalo State College’s Kim Granados designed this beautiful collection of gowns. A design student in the Fashion and Textile Technology Department, she was awarded first place honors in the college’s 2018 RUNWAY fashion show.  Grandados’s winning collection, inspired by a modern take on Victorian opulence, was shot for Buffalo Spree by award-winning photographer Luke Copping.
