Cynthia Rowley FW 2014: Western Slopes

See also

Cynthia Rowley hosted a private presentation of her Fall Winter 2014 collection in the Diamond Horseshoe nightclub near Times Square. Whoever selected the venue should be promoted, as it was about as perfect a backdrop as you could get for a collection involving themes such as the Wild West, the 60s, ski bunnies, spies, the 70s, and knife-throwing.

After check-in, guests made their way down a wide dimly-lit staircase. Piles of champagne glasses nesting in corners added to the decaying-decadence feeling. As guests reached the entrance to the nightclub, they were met with a pair of models encased in glass - in the same way you would take in an exhibit at the Natural History Museum - wearing designs from the collection. One in an all-black pantsuit ensemble (with the perfect pair of flared cropped pants), and one in a tomato-red turtleneck minidress with powder blue jacket - both looked ready for a night out after a day on the slopes.

Upon entering the club, guests were greeted by waitstaff foisting all manner of cocktails on little trays - and also by a stuffed leopard with its own rhinestone headpiece. Music throbbed, and small tribes of photographers roamed - taking pictures of guests, and each other. A video ran in the background showcasing the entire collection, but the main event was a passel of models dancing on the banquettes. Clumped in groups of three, they smiled and preened and threw out peace signs in looks from Fall Winter 2014 that had a little something for everyone. There were leather midi skirts, knee high boots, little black dresses with oval appliques, Technicolor bangle bracelets, and fierce sunglasses. All modeled by women with impossible cheekbones and cat eyeliner. The designer herself held court nearby with a small army of reporters thrusting microphones in her face. She seemed to take it all in stride.
