Corey Lynn Calter: Pretty Persuasion
Last time I saw her show snowflakes fell from the heavens, and fairytale inspired dresses swooshed up and down the runway. This show was less magical, in that way, but more refined and elegant. There were still whimsical details, butterfly buttons, polka dots and feathers. It was Holly Hobbie moves to the big city and goes to art openings and fancy restaurants, and just talking about it now I get excited. Sort of country patterns flowers and lace mixed with gold, short jumpers, suspenders with skirts. There were a few pieces—black and white dresses that were a little mod and a few black, white and red pieces that remsembled Miro paintings. All in all the collection lived up to its name: pretty baby.
