Relatively new to the runway, but definitely distinctive, Erin Fetherston's designs are what little big girls dream about. Super feminine and girly, while remaining modern, here is a collection that wisks you away to a beautiful boudoir floating in space. Fittingly, she named the collection “Wandering Stars."
The colors were neutral: black, grey, white and taupe but the collection felt far from drab with plump silhouettes and metallic sprinklings. The collection was all dresses, and reminded me of nightgowns you could wear out for a night on the town. Fabrics were light, sheers, tulles and chiffons, and heavy, velvet and brocades. Dreamy touches like the one shoulder and peter pan collars played up the youthful feel; bra tops on dresses added a subtle sex appeal. Prints and beading showed up in star and heart prints. All looks were escorted by grey sheer knit thigh highs and lovely beaded beanies.
My favorite look: A black velvet mini dress with sheer sleeves and neck; I love how skin plays peekaboo here. To see the rest of my New York Fashion Week Fall 2007 coverage click here.
