The Russian designer’s second couture show recounted equally strange stories while brimming with charm and, occasionally, a sense of wonderment. A soundtrack of spaghetti Westerns and snippets of “Rocky” and “The Wizard of Oz” accompanied her parade of pioneer women in bustle dresses, apron-topped skirts and damsel-in-distress off-the-shoulder blouses.

The ricochet between American and Soviet references was united by Sergeenko’s obsession with a nipped waist, showy fabrics and skirts that were either narrow and hobbling or broad enough to sweep the floor.

Straw corsets and rompers with built-in peplums topped many looks, or winked out from underneath a sinuous chiffon column. Sergeenko’s clothes were beautifully made with some dazzling techniques. Among the rabbits she pulled out of her hat were tasseled, vaguely Mexican shawls bearing homespun needlepoint embroideries. She whirled them into artfully sexy evening gowns.
