my view at whit fall 2012


last night, i had the pleasure of attending the whit fall 2012 runway show along with a little sneak backstage to get a look at the hair, makeup, shoes, and accessories. one glance at the array of space age hair dos, and i knew i was in for a good show!

“the collection was inspired by the dreamy and romanticized portrayal of space in pre-moon landing pop culture…the resulting collection is a celebration of imagination and the night sky. the line feautures planetary prints on silks, structured metallics, retro jacquards, and brightly color wools.”

that and the excellent pairing of shoes by loeffler randall and orly genger by jaclyn mayer jewelry, and you’ve got one hell of a show. the mod mini dresses were perfectly retro fun, and i just can’t get enough of that planet print dress!

please note that all photos were taken by me! please only reblog with proper attribution.

    I hope you’ll permit me – a total stranger – to say this Erin, but those gorgeous outfits are totally you. No seriously, those cuts, the silhouettes, I can see them on you for sure!
