Eating family style is one way to bring people together. Having family style, however, is better. Take Keith Lissner, who grew up in his grandmother’s couture shop. Following in her fashion footsteps, he began designing demicouture and has just launched a bridge line of versatile cocktail dresses. Some of the frocks have a Grecian vibe, like the Annie style with its pleated one-shoulder structure and flowing metallic cream fabric. If you’re more edgy, try the strapless Madi with an asymmetrical front layer or Lily, a magenta and graphite color-block number. The best part about the collection is the reasonable price tag. Meaning you could definitely go for seconds. Available online at store.keithlissner.com.
