Italian fashion designer Elie Balleh demonstrated that sport coats don’t have be your same-old Navy jacket or tweed.
At New York Summer Fashion Explosion in Chelsea on June 25, Balleh rolled out an extensive collection of sport coats, often embellished and embroidered, that worked for both men and women.
After showing his sparkling and artful designs on the runway in New York City’s gallery district, Balleh was presented with the Fashion Icon of the year by the organizers of New York Summer Fashion Explosion.
