Carolina Herrera Spring 2014 collection at New York Fashion Week was art in motion. Literally! Venezuelan born Herrera found inspiration for her latest creations in the Kinetic art movement and work of Venezuelan artists like Carlos Cruz-Diez and Jesús Rafael Soto. Taking a cue from the multidimensional optical illusion of geometric abstract paintings, Carolina Herrera created sinuous gowns and flowy skirts by layering geometric motifs on fabrics like chiffon, organza and voile. Celebrity favorite Herrera's Spring 2014 collection had a lot of pieces you can imagine stars wearing on the red carpets. Patterns of black and white in thin stripes and spiral designs moved gracefully with the prints in crimson, sienna and smokey umber. The whole collection had a soft color scheme with hues ranging from tea green, porcelain and mauve. There were silk and georgette gowns with embellished necklines, kinetic motif print silk organza skirts, sleek tops paired with pleated pants. The finale gown on Karlie Kloss was the true show stopper - a viscose gown in diamond dot print with silk organza overlay, that captured the spirit of kinetic art in motion.
The show had many celebrities including Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci, the R&B singer Ne-Yo, "Mad Men" actress Christina Hendricks and "Downton Abbey" star Michelle Dockery among others, sitting in the front row.
