What a high-energy show full of surprises, (yes in the clothes also).
The format of the show was so fun and unique. Models sat in the audience and shot up unexpectedly from their seats to strut down the runway, always keeping you on your toes of who would become part of the show next. The audience cheered as the models danced and posed making this a definitely more entertaining and different styled runway experience.
The clothes in this collection included lots of layering: layers of different prints (from plaid, to microfloral, to different versions of 70s flower power prints), and layers of oversized sheer pieces on top of tee shirts. Some of my favorite looks were Cynthia’s take on the athleisure sweatshirts with unexpected cutouts that turned these pieces into capes, of course layered with print blouses or buttons downs. Aside from prints, there were lots of fun pops of graphic color blocking, as well as the classic staples including that sexy little black velvet dress.
Another great thing to note is that Cynthia Rowley is a brand that believes in sustainable and environmentally friendly fashion, producing in lower quantities and using materials such as faux fur and faux suede to create the pieces.
Final verdict: It was a great performance and great collection by Cynthia Rowley.
