NYFW18: Carolina Herrera

FOLLOWING her AW18 show, Carolina Herrera took to the stage to be greeted with a standing ovation and an enormous bouquet of red roses. It was her final show, after announcing her role switch from designer to Global Brand Ambassador last week, leaving Wes Gordon to take the reins.

The show, which took place at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, was every inch the Herrera spectacle we expected. A gentle reminder of why we have remained in love with the fashion house over the past 37 years. Sophistication, elegance, it had it all. The monochrome combo of crisp white shirts and black trousers – which Herrera herself later appeared in – was a signature element.

Conservatism came in the form of eveningwear and formal dress in rainbow brights of yellow, burnt orange, blues and pinks. It was all about the glamour with sparkly ankle boots, feathers and accents of fur on a buttercup yellow overcoat or the cuffs of a white evening jacket. The clothes were breathable and able to move freely around the body, keeping the feminine edge that Herrera delivers time after time.

A parade of beautiful ball gowns, including one in blue stripe, were closely followed by a trail of models dressed in white shirts, wide waist belts and floor length taffeta skirts. It was the perfect ending and we wish her well in her new role.
