"I Love to tell a story...Fashion is such a colorful tale" -Rebecca Moses
This set the tone for Rebecca Moses return from Europe to show in New York after 20 years. The Lincoln center box was decked out like a giant walk-in storybook. Models posed against illustrated backdrops and over-sized library books. It had a whimsical Alice In Wonderland feel that guests were sucked right into (in a good way). Very few fashion week presentations manage to transport you out of your environment.
The clothes were flirty, fun and looked distinctly European. Polka dots and leopard spots were a prominent theme. The coquette is a term rarely heard stateside but definitely applied here. Unlike the whites, creams and tan I saw at countless other shows, Rebecca Moses brought out the citron, peony and mauve. There were cute coordinated suits, flirty dresses and bubble skirts.
Accessories included whimsical hairpieces, chunky bracelets and novelty necklaces.
