Nicole Hanley, Hanley: “I had the great privilege of visiting the Restoration Department of the Prado Museum.  A meticulous understanding of a painting, its artist and historical context is necessary for the restorer to return a picture to an authentic and original quality.  We studied the textures and prints as seen in the 16th and 17th century costumes, from the paintings of El Greco, Velazquez and Claudio Coello and returned those historical influences through embroidered laces, unusual prints, rich velvets and veiled polka dots to our sophisticated, 21st Century woman on the go…”

Rhié: “The inspiration came from a darker take on elevated everyday wear and enhancing the innate nature of materials used. We looked at Maria Pergay’s work in the 60s and 70s and her use of stainless steel in furniture with fluid lines and rich fabrications.”

Alejandra Alonso Rojas, A MOI: “The Fall-Winter 2016 collection is a study of contemporary silhouettes, incorporating the primary colors and interpreting the rudimentary shapes of Bauhaus design.” NYFW Preview: Inspiration From Creatures of the Wind and FRAME Denim
