Narces, Pink Tartan and Hilary Macmillan hit the runway
Narces’ pretty pastels: Designer Nikki Wirthensohn always makes a mean cocktail dress, but we thought this was her strongest collection yet. Delicate powder pink floral appliques dangled delicately off sheer dresses and a floor-length lilac lace gown had audience members’ hearts aflutter. Narces also upped their bridal game this year, showing multiple white wonders. Apparently style-savvy brides are where the big money is these days.
Pink Tartan’s 70s fail: We love the 70s trend all over the runways right now, but Pink Tartan went ahead and made it weird. The collection was full of unflattering striped skirts and crop tops… not to mention the ill-fitting, frumpy blazers. And the models’ frizzy, helmet-head hairstyles definitely should’ve been left in decades past.
Hilary Macmillan’s 70s win: In complete contrast to Pink Tartan, Hilary Macmillan nailed this trend and made it her own with unique, funky prints and dresses that managed to be both loose, free and perfectly fitted all at once. We especially loved her cool girl boho formalwear. This is the best we’ve ever seen Macmillan and can’t wait for more.
