On Sunday, October 9th, 2016 Domenico Vacca and Irina Shabayeva presented their striking formal collection for men and women. This was their first joined fashion show and a very first show at the newly opened Domenico Vacca Private Club and Boutique. A combination of couture gowns from Irina Shabayeva and Domenico Vacca men's clothing and women's accessories were perfectly paired for the show for all attendees to see.

A diverse group of guests including celebrities, VIP’s, Domenico Vacca and Irina Shabayeva’s clients attended and enjoyed brunch at the Domenico Vacca Cafe after the show.  

The collection presented was beautiful, vibrant and very sexy. We are always mesmerized by Irina's collections as she never disappoints to provide an incredible couture collection.
