Laurel Dewitt kicked off her 2016 Fall/Winter collection with some denim, knit and leather pieces.
Dewitt is well known for her traditional chain dresses and chain webbing garments. All of the pieces are handmade by her. The leather and denim looks which were distressed by hand, are intertwined with metal chains, dangles, and baubles that both enthrall and captivate. Metal ornaments were hand gunned on delicate knit beanies as she raised -the bar for this season. This season included eighteen garments. This seasons looks are softened from the average biker look.
This year’s show took place in the heart of the meatpacking district at hotspot 1 Oak. With an intimate setting DeWitt dropped jaws with her detailed pieces that lit up the night. Garments where hand-cut, hand-molded, and hand-inked roses were created from sheets of metal adding colors and a classy aesthetic. Silken petals are contrasted to knife-like protective thorns. Her pieces can represent and edgy lady or a glamorous one.
The Fall/Winter 2016 collection closed off the show with a leaflet and chain plunged fit and flair gown. It’s metal rose pallets glistened on the runway.
An after-party followed at Troy Liquor Bar nearby.
