One Party of a Presentation: the Erin Fetherston Show
With a few presentations under my belt, I’ve never once felt like I came unprepared. Chic ensemble, heels of course, phone and camera ready to profess, but no gift in hand. The Erin Fetherston Spring/Summer 2013 unveiling was more chic Standard birthday party than fashion week presentation. From cocktail to floor length, dresses took center stage against a backdrop of the Hudson River, over sized white balloons, and a sea of sun kissed models with Erin’s signature bangs.
Erin didn’t shy away from texture. Feathers and beads highlighted refreshing knee length looks, resembling the 1920′s. With the Royal family’s recent media push and shows like Mad Men and Downtown Abbey, is it too soon to wish for a return to femininity and romantic cuts? In other words, put the Herve Leger bandage away!
Erin’s California roots could be identified from the tie-die and fading in flowing, cinched and even ruched chiffon in colors like yellow and a blood orange that could challenge 2012′s Pantone color of the year, Tangerine Tango.
But just as long as the dresses graced the floor, short suits with statement making blazers debuted with a metallic twist on floral.
A personal favorite of mine was a dress that nicely balanced feathers, a reoccurring trend from fall and a racer back that accentuates a woman’s sexy backside. An instant flashback to Ms. Bradshaw’s beloved ballet skirt in the opening credits, but that rivals the tulle.
All in all, the whimsical and flirty DNA in Erin Fetherston’s blood delights us yet again in a collection tied together by color and elegance.

Behind every over sized suitcase should be a fabulously chic woman ready to take on the world as she doesn’t know it. Traveling-in-Heels is an online destination for women who want to marry travel and style. Proactively, I documented my travel expeditions and created a platform to share them with others.
