Fashion week rolled on for us, with lots of dramatic moments—from striking showplaces, like a church and metropolitan halls with vaulted ceilings, to ornate couture headpieces.
We got a glimpse of more mommy and me styles at Sherri Hill.
Sherri’s flair for drama was also on full display with statement-making eveningwear.
We then hit up Laurel Dewitt, whose runway presentation was over the top in all the right ways. Barely-there dresses, bodysuits and other pieces were beaded, studded and sequined with cut outs and topped off with sensational accessories. One of our favorites, pictured here, was a clear parasol with beaded chain draped over it.
On the way out of the Laurel Dewitt show, we were treated to a display of couture headwear that definitely, umm, turned our heads!
British jewelry designer Monica Vinader teamed up with fashion illustrator Jenny Walton, and we definitely didn’t miss out on the soiree.
Next up, we headed to the Rinat Brodach collection, where we were treated to boyfriend-inspired womenswear.
Jean Paul Ataker finished his show, which was filled with ruffles, pearls and feminine frills, with an elegant yet equally breathtaking number.
Then it was onto Raul Penaranda’s spring 2017 collection, which took cues from 1950’s Cuba. The results were theatrical pieces in lush colors and rich embroidery, topped off with chunky beaded jewelry, light porkpie hats and big floral headpieces.
Dennis Basso also delivered on the drama with feminine lace, supple leathers and sumptuous furs.
