Erin Fetherston FW2010NEW YORK, Feb 15, 2010 / FW/ — This season, Erin Fetherston found inspiration in the iconic Chelsea girl, Nico, and references the singer’s bohemian style in a collection that balances soft romantic dresses with rock ‘n’ roll tailoring, perfect for the poetess at heart.

Silhouettes range from long flowing chiffon dresses to swinging thigh skimming shifts. The collection’s look for day pays homage to Nico’s relaxed tomboy style while never forgetting her feminine allure.

Evening directly channels her rock and roll persona into an overtly glamorous statement on nighttime dressing.

Fetherston works with a dreamy palette of lilac, nude, and sage, grounded by a landscape of bold black and white accented with shades of vivid orange. Materials like lace, chiffon, leather and velvet are intertwined to create clothing with a lighter than air feeling for a woman with a bit of edge.

Notable guests included: Karen Elson, Sarah Sophie Flicker, Zoe Kravitz, Ellen von Unwerth, Lisa Salzer, Mckenzie Eddy, Whitney Port, The Like’s Tennessee Thomas & Annie Zuckerman, Becka Diamond, Cosi Theodoli-Braschi, Damon Dash, Rebecca Forteau
