Frederick Anderson Spring 24
Frederick Anderson presented his Spring / Summer 2024 Ready-to-Wear Collection as part of New York Fashion Week. Entitled The Swan, the 38 look fashion show was held at the landmarked Beaux Arts Edith Sheppard Fabbri Mansion on East 95th Street.


Last spring I attended the American Ballet Theater’s production of Swan Lake … an emotional evening taking me back to my original move to NYC to study at the Joffrey Ballet from boarding school at NCSA.

I began to muse at the idea of the dancing ballet swans of my past and the fashionable Swans in my current life – to take from the term Truman Capote dubbed his close circle of social ladies.

The Swan is indeed a beautiful glamorous bird, strong and self-reliant.  In Swan Lake the princess Odette turns into Odile and leaps to her death over a man. An idea I find romantic, but thankfully, not plausible for a modern woman.

This season I was feeling the romance and play with the evolution of my modern-day Swans. – Frederick Anderson
