Parade of Pretty: Cynthia Rowley

September 24, 2009

Cynthia Rowley was a parade of dreamy dresses and broken-glass sequins on a backdrop of Gotham Hall’s Ballroom, especially haunted for the proceedings. Everything was draped in huge white sheets and models emerged from a dilapidated stage like darling little ghosts with tightly curled bangs. As always, the clothes were the purest interpretation of pretty.

See the full collection here. My photos from the runway and backstage, below.

Backstage, I got a close-up glimpse of the garments before they were bagged and hauled out. I ran into some friends working as dressers in the minuscule room that lead to a massive banquet hall of a makeup room.

I spotted Waris Ahluwalia and decided to pop over and ask him a few questions. I hadn’t prepared anything, so all that came to mind were to ask him what he had for breakfast. He said, “a smoothie!” with a smile on his face.
