Spring 10: Conversationals
Miu Miu, Prada, Giles, Karen Walker, Holly Fulton
Miu Miu explored the tension between innocence and sexual knowledge, with images of kitty cats, birds, apples, and naked men on preppy school girl outfits. Miuccia then took a light and literal approach to the Prada line with photographic, tonal beach scenes.
The concept for Karen Walker's line was inspired by a movie called "The Prisoner," in which former spies are inprisoned on an island. The idea is, Holiday for prisoners. Lots of nautical stripes and maritime flags adorned the line.
Holly Fulton was the shining star of Fashion East's presentation. Prints and appliques of skyscrapers created a very original and forward look to her simple dresses.
