NYFW Review: Harare Fall/Winter 2014


Harare FW14 NEW YORK FASHION WEEK Caroline Fuss had an artistic story to tell. Delving into the work of abstract expressionists, she took notes from Rothko and Frankenthaler Diebenkorn while focusing on the "depth, distinctiveness and silent communication of fashion" for her fall/winter 2014 collection.

With a runway meets presentation strategy, models brought the clothes to life by walking down a vintage-inspired carpet, but also gave the audience a way to see her crisp vision as these young, chic and politely disheveled women took their posts. The beauty of the collection came from the embroidered textiles sourced from Guatemala, geometric brocades that looked best on a sweater coat and  3/4 sleeve jacket. Mixed with burgundy leather looks and Peruvian alpaca pieces, this fall was about texture and color going vivid. There was a also a grey and yellow plaid family that worked on a pleated school girl look and  shorts. Plus, the chunky knits, enveloping scarves and cowl sweaters were done with comforting emotion, most left wishing that winter 2014 was already here.
