NYFW: Erin Fetherston Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

erin fetherston spring 2016 fashion show

As expected Erin Fetherston’s collection was soft and feminine filled with romantic florals and ethereal dresses. Long slip dresses of blues, florals and with (mixed with a few red dresses), some topped with caplets or sheer prints, floated down the runway. Other dresses harken back to Edwardian times with high necklines.  Each model walked across the runway on a cloud offemininity. However there was an unexpected twist to this year’s collection. Mixed among the feminine dresses were playful pieces of denim.  Keeping with Fetherston’s esthetic the denim was soft and femine. The easy fitting overalls shorts and culottes were a welcome addition to her normally fanciful clothing.  

Along with her Spring ready to wear looks Erin debuted her first collection of handbags.  Although we only saw a limited amount on the runway, these handbags resembled needlepoint samplers done long ago and were embellished with phrases such as “Love” all tying in perfectly with the feminine collection.

Miss Pop for KISS Nails brought it with a “mixy matchy” floral look. Fetherston wanted the nail look to reflect wallpaper with a repeating flower of different proportions. Every painted blossom had center pearls from the Salon Secrets Luxe Accents kit by KISS. Miss Pop’s tip for applying those tiny pearls is to use an orange stick rather then tweezers. It was important to Miss Pop and Erin to have a nude palate without being boring.

To achieve this look Miss Pop used the same technique as she would use to create a watercolor nail.  She dipped a nail polish brush into acetone to sheer out the polish and strike the nail to make a petal.  Before you begin your floral creation Miss Pop says to make sure your base is completely dried. If you have a hard time with nail art like I do Kiss has already made floral nails that you can stick on for short term wear or glue on for long term wear.
