Erin Fetherston Spring/Summer 2015

Bailey Evans, Deputy Features Editor

As New York Fashion Week wound down, Erin Fetherston’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection personified the designer’s trademark, California chic style. Crisp whites and playful citrus-colored lace filled with runway with dark satin juxtaposing gorgeously.

The collection, entitled “Moonlight and Roses,” epitomized feminine fashion with floral and butterfly prints elevating what would typically only be standard fashion week fare. A series of neoprene, white pieces featured the prints to start the show along with an omnipresent crop top. Much of the show kept in line with many recent trends including high-waisted skirts, satin shorts and dark, sheer fabrics. To add texture to a collection filled with smooth pieces, lace was a prominent feature most notably showing up in a multitude of crop tops.

Perhaps the most striking look of the show came in the form of a high-waisted, lemon gown that shimmered and swayed perfectly as it came down the runway. The loose gown was the peak of her show’s series of shiny, “Madame Butterfly” themed pieces.

Not one to ignore the many influences of New York City, Fetherston featured sexy pieces including a striped and sheer organza gown paired with a basic black bodice to add a touch of dark glamour to the largely light, romantic show.

With fresh-faced models donning hair smoothed back into simple buns, it was the often-featured oversized, white sunglasses that stole the accessory aspect of the show. White leather pumps worn with each piece offered simple footwear to match the bright pieces.

With her ability to create a fresh, innovative look from what are largely expected springtime trends, Fetherston’s collection provided an airy yet elegant look regardless of the coast.
