NYFW Day 1: The Shows // Erin Fetherston
In Pursuit of Rhapsody
Imagine a night out with your girlfriends. Now imagine the most beautiful shades of blush, burgundy, ivory, black, and indigo on billowing maxis paired with structured velvet blazers completed with a bohemian printed scarf. This vision was portrayed luxuriously in the Erin Fetherston 'In Pursuit of Rhapsody' collection for Fall 2017. Inspired greatly by her travels, Fetherston brought elements from all over the globe into her romantic, free-spirited pieces. Babouches adorned the models’ feet, as worn in Marakesh, Morocco. Shimmering black and gold gowns flowed beautifully next to tiered fringe floor-length dresses inspired by Seville's flamenco dancers. As the gowns swept the runway, the audience was tantalized by the movement of the fringe tassels. Velvet blazers and dramatic maxi dresses were effortlessly interwoven for the ideal dressed-up bohemian look. This pairing evidently defined her line as a 'refined take on bohemian dressing.'
The models each had a unique, exotic look. Their makeup was done subtly, and long tousled waves bounced on shoulders as the models flounced down the runway. Minimal accessories decorated their bodies, making the ethereal clothing the focal point of each look.
This collection really speaks to the romantic, free-spirited soul inside us all, just waiting to make its way out.
