Erin Fetherston was another NYFW favorite that I was honored to have attended. Fetherston is no stranger to learning and expanding her knowledge, as she graduated from UC Berkeley and went on to study abroad at Parsons Paris. In 2005, she showcased her eponymous feminine and whimsical label during the Paris Haute Couture shows. She moved to New York City in 2007 and has become a staple designer in showing her ready-to-wear collection during New York Fashion Week.
Her Spring/Summer 2015 collection was titled- “Moonlight and Roses,” infusing her signature feminine charm with the spirit of la dolce vita; as well as equal parts Grimaldi glamour and California cool. The collection takes us on a journey through flower fields and blossoming roses through Fetherston’s use of whimsical florals in a delightful mix of laces, jacquards, printed neoprene and flowy printed organza. We even saw glimpses of swanky tops and clutches with the slogan- Charmed, I’m Sure, which is based on the short film- Charmed, I’m Sure. The film takes a witty nod to mid-century finishing schools, with the designer teaching ‘model students’ the arts of style, charm and social graces. These sloganed pieces blended in nicely with the theme and Fetherston’s overall aesthetic. I admired her entire collection, but most importantly, her use of dainty crop tops that were paired with wispy statement skirts. Every garment was carefully thought out and tailored, especially the shorts and pants, for a casual stroll under the moonlight.
