New York Fashion Week: Elegance And Style Rule The Catwalk For Carolina Herrera


New York Fashion Week has long been a highlight of many style fans' calendars and 2012 has been no exception. A standout of this year's programme so far has been Carolina Herrera's Spring 2013 collection, which she debuted yesterday (September 10, 2012). Along with fellow Venezuelan designer Norisol Ferrari, Herrera's collection went for 'timeless appeal,' whilst Ferrari's took influence from classic Hollywood style icons, such as Marilyn Monroe and Rita Hayworth.
Much like the classic backless dress that Herrera designed for Kristen Stewart to wear at the Breaking Dawn: Part 1 premiere; Herrera's latest collection did not play to fads or fashion but rather to the concept of elegance. She is renowned for the intricate details that she applied to her work and one showpiece of the collection was an ivory pleated silk gown, with floral embroidery and oyster snakeskin skinny belt, Reuters reports. Carolina attracted an A-list crowd to her runway show, including Bianca Jagger, Boris Becker and Vanity Fair's editor Graydon Carter.
Meanwhile, Norisol Ferrari spoke of the actresses that had inspired her latest collection, saying that they were all "strong, confident women who command attention, desire and respect." Ferrari chose not to use the usual stream of waif-like models to parade her creations down the catwalk but instead opted for "women of a certain age" including the former supermodel, 51-year-old Carol Alt, "who drew applause in a flowing, belted black and cream gown." These two Venezuelan designers have proven once more that fashions may come and go but style is everlasting.
