Making it to Carolina Herrera’s fashion show was the most amazing experience I had in NYFW. I wanted so bad to get into one of the biggest Latina American designer’s show and I actually did it.
The show was at the MoMa and it carried a nostalgic feeling because of her retirement as a creative director of her own brand; now in charge will be Wes Gordon.
Her collection started with classic black and white looks emerging into outfits where the subtle use of animal prints took the lead adding pieces with pop colors like yellow, blue, orange, red.
She uses texture in her fabrics to create volume and feminism (feather look) and asymmetric shapes with openings on the sides of the skirts. She also plays with texture juxtaposing translucent fabrics with solid colors.
She finished in statement fashion with beautiful gowns in bold colors, very elegant and feminine similar to the aesthetic she has displayed throughout her 38 years as creative director of CH.
The night ended with a “ceremony on the row” from the CH team, they brought her a flower arrangement in appreciation for her many years as a creative director.
