>> Earlier this afternoon, in a private room at the Four Seasons Restaurant in midtown Manhattan, Fenton designer Dana Lorenz presented her Spring 2012 collection on seven stoic models dressed head-to-toe in ivory. "Chloe and Valentino," Lorenz said of the models' monochrome ensembles, while guests such as Mark Holgate and Meredith Melling Burke snapped pictures and chatted jovially. It was a relaxed yet refined atmosphere, one that was perfectly in-step with the pastel-dotted collection. Inspired by Miami's Art Deco architecture, this was the softer side of Fenton — fringed duster necklaces were accented with crystals and pearls, and silk chokers were strung with dyed turquoise and moonstone. "It’s very playful,” the designer explained. “I usually go for a dark strength in my work, but Spring is about color and to me, these pastels still feel powerful.”
