Behind the Scenes of Fall 2018

CREATIVE DIRECTORS LAURA KIM AND FERNANDO GARCIA BEGAN THE FALL 2018 COLLECTION WITH A MEMORY: A TRIP TAKEN YEARS AGO WITH MR. DE LA RENTA FOR A PRIVATE VIEWING OF THE CLOISTERS IN UPPER MANHATTAN. THE MEDIEVAL MUSEUM SERVED AS A STARTING POINT, LEADING THEM TO LOOK AT ELIZABETHAN TEXTILES AND MYSTICAL TAPESTRIES FOR INSPIRATION.

A RUNWAY WAS BUILT AGAINST A BACKDROP OF SOARING MARBLE COLUMNS AND MAGNIFICENT PAINTED VAULTED CEILINGS. THE INSPIRATION COULD BE SEEN IN THE RICH FABRICS, BAROQUE PRINTS, PARCHMENT PAPER HUES AND ELABORATE EMBROIDERIES RUNNING THROUGHOUT. HERE, SNAPSHOTS FROM BEHIND THE SCENES ON THE DAY THE LAUDED COLLECTION DEBUTED.
