Sister Act

One of the best parts of my job is discovering young talent (and by that I mean having a PR person bang down my door with a newly launched line).
Public relations powerhouse Porter Novelli threw a party earlier this week for a program it's put together to help showcase emerging designers. And there I met sisters Karen and Anne Lin, the pair behind Aira. It's hard not to get excited about their clothes when you meet them. Both came to the event decked in easy, chic pieces from their
Spring '09 line, and were like kids in a candy store at all the attention and praise. Their inaugural Fall '08 collection consists of just a few clean, architectural pieces--and shows amazing promise. I
love their dramatic, but wearable take on the skinny pant, aptly named 'The Winged' ($270; From the sneak peak I saw it's clear we'll be seeing much more from this adorable duo.
