Moshpix: Fresh off winning the Oscar Designer Challenge, Chicago's Borris Powell presented his Fall/Winter 2011 Collection "C me N Dior" at the Sheraton Hotel. It's the first time Powell included women's separates in a line, a departure from the elegant evening dresses he's known for. The show stopper was the dress pictured above, "Black Swan," the same dress that won the Oscars competition and was featured prominently throughout the nationally televised ceremony.
