Verran is […]

The fearlessly talented fashion designer Andre Soriano debuted his dazzling “Heiress Collection” at Style Fashion Week.

I love the effortless style of the go-to pieces in this collection of timeless looks. The quality of the fabrics is apparent, as they use only the most luxurious fabrics on the market and design specifically with comfort and style in mind. By designing and […]
