SAO PAULO--Samuel Cirnansck has earned a reputation for his theatrical, over the top runway shows. Last season the designer sent his models down the runway tied up and gagged, so I was pretty excited to see what he had cooked up this time. And while it wasn't nearly as risque as last season, it was still a visual treat. Cirnansck dusted the runway with fake snow, and set up a huge wrought-iron gate at the front of the runway.

Also refreshing: Cirnansck used a handful of black models--more than any other designer we've seen yet. Kudos.
