NYFW17: Verdad by LOUIS VERDAD

THE WEATHER WAS OMINOUS, BUT THE VERDAD FALL/WINTER COLLECTION WAS LUMINOUS. INSPIRED BY THE SORT OF EFFORTLESS AND POLISHED SREET STYLE, FAVORED IN LOS ANGELES. THE RUNWAY COLLECTION WAS STRIKING AND VIVID WITH DARK HUES AGAINST CREAM, FLORALS, AND FLUID WATER COLOR PRINTS, SHEER BLOUSES, AND FANCIFUL PAILLETTES FOR EVENING.

LOUIS VERDAD IS THE FOUNDER AND CREATOR OF THIS DIRECTIONAL BRAND.  IN HIS ILLUSTRIOUS CAREER HE HAS DRESSED MADONNA, CATE BLANCHETT, AND CHRISTINA AGUILERA , AND MANY OTHER NOTABLE CELEBRITIES AND STARS.

IMAGINE THIS DREARY DAY, AND THEN THE DELIGHT OF FRESH WHITE, DRAPED ON THE RUNWAY MODELS,  LIKE SHEETS OF TRANSULENT ICE.

THE FINAL WALK WAS MET WITH SINCERE APPLAUSE, CAT CALLS, AND WHISTLES. THE FLICKERING OF LIGHTS FROM CAMERAS LENT A SURREAL LOOK.
