About the Collection: Raoul hit it out of the ballpark with its fall/winter 2014 Ready to Wear Collection and the launch of its new accessories collection. The collection is truly distinct, for it could act as a complete wardrobe, containing pieces for virtually any occasion. From casual jumpsuits to elegant gowns, ornate handbags to catchall totes, to the wide variety of footwear, Raoul’s collection tends to the wearer’s every need.
The Theme: Inspired by the legendary Barbizon Hotel, a destination for young women in pursuit of big city dreams, Fetherston’s collection of truly feminine dresses express a certain sentiment — a charmed life awaits, and we need only to dress the part in order to arrive
The Color Palette: Wintery pastels and dazzling hues of emerald, sapphire, and ruby
About the Collection: Erin Fetherston really knows how to make a woman feel like a sophisticated lady. Her use of delicate laces and rich textures create dresses that leave long-lasting impressions.
