Jenny Packham - #NYFW Spring 2017

"To art buffs, the invitation to Jenny Packham's Spring '17 show might have looked familiar: It was the same one Peggy Guggenheim sent out for her controversial "Exhibition by 31 Women" in 1943. Packham "nicked" the idea today with a collection of 31 looks inspired by 31 distinct and stylish women. That being said, you couldn't really view all 31 looks as a "collection," since they each captured a very different personality. But there were a few through-lines to unify the show. Packham's signature embellishments were as lavish as ever, but she was experimenting with embroidery, too, which had a more casual feel. She also loosened up her silhouettes a bit, focusing less on the sequined body-skimming column dresses and more on flowing, lightly embellished frocks you can style multiple ways." -
