runway . review.

I do sometimes wonder if the pressure of having to create (at least) four collections per year - Fall/Winter, Resort, Spring/Summer, Pre-Fall - is a bit too much for fashion designers. Some seem to pull it off effortlessly, churning out beautiful and wearable garments season after season. Others fare not so well.

Earlier this year I raved about Erin Fetherston's dresses - they were glamorous and whimsical. This morning I peeked at her 2009 Resort collection hoping for a lighter version of her signature fairy-esque style.

But, no.

Look and judge for yourself, though my opinion remains firmly grounded in the, "Why did you put shiny wallpaper on the models?" category.




(My fingers are crossed that something a bit more inspiring will appear in her SS 09 collection.)

oh no! this is all wrong. the dresses are so shapeless and the color palette is too pale to flatter most skin tones. no, erin, no.
