For Fall, I attend the amazing Honor Show Collection at this New York Fashion Week. Also, I have the lovely pleasure to meet the designer mother Nancy Burti Randall and she share with me the true love and admiration for her daughter work. The talent designer Giovanna Randall went into the woods and returned with a collection that read like a fairy tale. The woods were those around her grandmother’s Vermont home. The models, meanwhile, really did emerge from a mushroom covered tree at the end of the runway. I really fell in love with the Honor collection.
These were sweet, innocent, well-crafted, and ultra-feminine clothes that often riffed literally on Randall’s motif. Clusters of mushrooms that grow on trees were translated into beaded versions across organza bodies and down chiffon sleeves. In measured doses, it would have been whimsical.
Randall clearly has strong inspiration in the past with great taste to update for today marketing, one who is wildly romantic and unapologetically feminine.
