On Wednesday night the duo behind the fashion label Greta Constantine presented their third show to an audience of more than 300 at Circa. The Campari-sponsored show included Stephen Wong and Kirk Pickersgill's signature mirrored runway, this time anchored by a glacier-shaped structure emphasizing the evening's “Fragile” theme. Staff at Circa constructed the 38 by 6-foot runway over three days using wooden planks covered in mirrored Plexiglas.

Following a cocktail reception in the upstairs ballroom, the show started 45 minutes after its scheduled 8:00 start time, set to the music of DJ Mark Vidovik. Near the end of the presentation, 10 male models wearing briefs made from the label's signature jersey material stood at the top of the runway as the remainder of the female models stepped out.

Wong and Pickersgill decided to show their spring/summer collection five days before L'Oreal Fashion Week to avoid scheduling conflicts with other designers; they will debut their Atelier collection at LG's Fashion Fusion event on October 25.
