#NYFW Erin Fetherston Spring 2011

Erin Fetherston presented her Spring 2011 collection, dubbed “Bird of Paradise,” Sunday evening and a tranquilly exotic aesthetic prevailed. Before the show even began, the mood was set with birds chirping in the background; Kelly Osbourne took her front row perch and watched as models sashayed down the runway. Hair was long and straight hair and the model's skin had a sun kissed glow; a bright coral lip made the look pop.

The collection itself was reminiscent of a modern, more glamorous version of  Out of Africa meets Casablanca. Safari hats and jackets were updated with soft satin touches. Beautiful splashes of corals and jungle greens channeled the flora and fauna of a jungle. And after taking in the dresses, caftans, and blouses that glided by, we too were temporarily transported to a far off locale. ~Ivana Cepeda
