Fashion Week: Halston and Tracy Reese
NEW YORK (AP ) More shows from Fashion Week, which comes to an end Thursday.
The city-loving night owl that has long defined the Halston customer probably doesn’t get out into the garden much, so designer Marios Schwab gave her a few reminders of what it might be like out there: light, pretty, soft.
“I started looking into florals and wild orchids and that was the start of the inspiration,” he said in an interview before Monday night’s New York Fashion Week presentation at a Chelsea gallery.
But this was no garden party, either. Halston is built on easy, sexy chic of the ‘70s kind, and Schwab embraces that while adding his own touches of modernity.
A black jersey dress, for example, had a gold snakelike halter top, and a two-tone, one-shoulder gown had a burnout effect in the beading. All it took from a white, high-neck georgette dress to become a sexy number were split sleeves and a gold waistband, and an ivory-pink jersey dress was gathered at the bottom, as if the model had just tacked up a longer gown because she no longer wanted to be bothered by the fuss.
