Carolina Herrera unfurled her flowers at New York Fashion Week with a collection that plays with the fresh colors of a neglected garden.
“I love this idea of creating a garden for a spring collection,” said creative director Wes Gordon, who was inspired by his favorite childhood book, Frances Hodgson Burnett’s “The Secret Garden,” as well as of a floral fabric archival book. “The secret comes from the injections of black and the touches of black accessories, giving it that little bit of mystery and sensuality.”
Sexy yet sophisticated cutouts on the dresses helped create an unabashed mix of glamour, beauty and joy. Models at the Plaza Hotel listened to fun songs by Barbra Streisand designed to lift their spirits on a gloomy day.
“We started with ‘Don’t Rain on My Parade,’ then went to ‘Guilty,’ and ended with ‘Hello, Dolly,'” Gordon said. “So if everyone wasn’t tapping their feet and humming these songs the rest of the day, I don’t know what’s wrong with them.” The show ended with the five women who are the face of the brand’s “Good Girl” fragrance, led by supermodel Karlie Kloss.
