Language designer and shop owner Ana Abdul was aglow last Wednesday, hosting the first trunk held in her NoLIta store. Favorite clients, including Beth Blake, Alex Kramer, Fernanda Niven, Celerie Kemble and Rachel Peters, all put in their orders and checked out Abdul’s new collection of reconstructed gowns.

“It’s vintage,” PR diva Liz Cohen explained, holding up a rose silk number.

“So it’s not hers,” Lulu de Kwiatkowski surmised.

“It is,” said Cohen. “It’s remade.”

“So she makes them smaller,” de Kwiatkowski determined.

But Abdul’s gowns, which a few clients will wear to the New York City Ballet’s “Dance With the Dancers” benefit tonight, are both smaller and better than the originals.
