All that shines here is gold. Cynthia Rowley brought her tongue-in-cheek contemporary dressing to Lincoln center yesterday with a gilded flair. It started with a shiny gold runway that was being polished by multiple people prior to the show.
Silhouettes were fit and flared with skirts and dresses above the knee. There was a black and gold grouping with graphic Aztec-inspired prints or more Baroque gold embellishment prints. There was a lighter gold and cream grouping with more solid knits.
My favorite was the abstract, painterly floral print that looked like it was splattered across charmeuse and satin. The florals were a mix of bright spring colors against a black or cream backdrop.
Cynthia Rowley not only gave good "runway", she was there to service her fellow fashionistas. Parked outside the fashion week venue was the "Glambulance" to fix fashion malfunctions, cover up blisters with embellished band-aids and rescue beauty emergencies.
