It was a very well attended party. Cocktails were served among the beautifully staged and illuminated mannequins dressed in exquisite luxe gowns. The collection first previewed in Dusseldorf for spring of 2005 and was made up of two parts: "Diva---Tall modern girls in languid editorial stance, perfect for the new glamour about to hit the fashion world"; and "Drama----Big glamour poses, striding the runways of Paris, new age sirens, women who take the lead, travel alone, are independent and fearless."

According to the Rootstein press kit, the collection was inspired by "six of the fashion worlds youngest talents". They are Ulla Van Zella, a German/Columbian model and actress and Oliver Stones recent muse in his latest epic 'Alexander the Great; Laiane a 16 year old Brazilian model; Nairi a Russian girl seen as the face of Vivienne Westwood on London billboards; Astra a 19 year old Lithuanian beauty, Irene a voluptuous and sensual exotique from the Cameroon, and Jade Parfit the English model.
