Cynthia Rowley wowed guests with a festive Spring/Summer 2017 presentation on Friday evening. Attendees walked into an open studio where they were welcomed with music, cocktails and fashion. Bloggers and celebs walked the floor in their vibrant Rowley pieces honoring the designer who wore a simple black tee and large grin while she chatted with her guests.
On one end of the studio, models danced and twirled while sipping champagne in their fashionable frocks behind a sheer white curtain. The collection included bold embroideries and flirty florals, 70s inspired denim and embellished pastel dresses. Notable attendees included designer Whitney Port, Rich Kids of Beverly Hills star and newlywed Morgan Stewart, actress Jessica Lowndes and blogger Rocky Barnes who donned a floor length skirt from the SS17 resort collection.
The fashion was playful and flirty and the atmosphere was energetic and glamorous. Rowley’s presentation captured the true spirit of what NYFW is and used to be. Guests left the party in cheerful moods slightly covered in white feathers that floated delicately from the model display. It was a true wonderland presented by Rowley that was much appreciated by attendees.
