Alexandre Herchcovitch at New York Fashion Week – Fall/Winter 2012
In a sunny winter afternoon at the Standard Hotel, fashion designer Alexandre Herchcovitch’s fall/winter 2012 runway show brought a much welcomed ray of golden light to the often layered, heavy and dark winter shows. With a palette of mostly golds and earth tones, Herchcovitch’s winter dresses conjure a structured femininity with sensual and easy lines that utilize the nature of the collection’s eclectic materials to reinterpret classic silhouettes. In the couturier’s signature material approach, new fabrics are created by layering and fusing of diverse fabrics. The show-stoppers consisted of delicate dresses made from layers of several different types of gold lace, conveying a whimsical and warm winter attitude. The soundtrack, which included a remix of Kate Bush’s Babushka, furthered the sun-kissed journey into a realm of fantasy and poise.
