New York Fashion Week Spring '09: The Ethereal Erin Fetherston.

17_2 21


Summary: Erin Fetherston‘s Spring ’09 Collection,
entitled "East of the Sun and West of the Moon" was just that– a trip
through the cosmos where star-gazing was optimal. Fetherston’s
perennially chic silhouettes were at their all-time best this season,
showcasing a selection of mystical Midsummer Night’s Dream-like
designs. The creativity of the collection reigned in chiffon– the Pink
Chiffon Asymmetrical Tank and Opalescent Sequin Skirt was purely divine
(no pun intended), while the Shirred Lime Chiffon Dress already looked
like a staple at next year’s hottest Hamptons fete. I was particularly
intrigued by the White Chiffon Overall paired with the Sky Print
Bandeau, proving that Erin Fetherston’s genius can literally transform
typical farmer’s work-wear into delicate ready-to-wear. By far and
away, the most outstanding looks of the evening were the Cloud dresses,
skirts, and gowns. Always partial to a shift, the White Organza Cloud
Shift Dress was a sexy, innovative, and perfectly styled frock that
had me, quite literally, on cloud nine. Pun intended.
