Emerging designer Rosenthal Tee drew in large crowd at the New York Fashion Week debut of her Spring/Summer ’17 collection entitled The Girl, Sisa. This was the designer's sophomore season at Fashion Week and Rosenthal wanted to create a strong collection reflecting her Filipino roots. The designer incorporated traditional Filipino accents such as butterfly wings and lace details to the 33 look collection. Beginning with separates and garden dresses and ending with dramatic evening wear, the collection featured reworked halters, beaded rosettes, oversized bow accents and fringed feathers. Rosenthal kept to classic black and white for most of the collection with pops of periwinkle and aquamarine. Sheer made a strong statement from beginning to end with the popular “naked dress” as the finale. Rosenthal’s designs were strong, stylish and effortless, a perfect fit for any stylish girl about town. Much like the music industry a sophomore collection to a well received debut is pressure filled and heavy with expectation. Rosenthal Tee met that challenge head on and broke through the proverbial glass ceiling. We look forward to what the young designer comes up with next season.
