Erin Fetherston is unquestionably the it-girl of fashion and her spring 2008 collection, entitled Flights of Fancy, was drenched in soft shapes and glamour. The emotional space within the clothing called out to polished drama with a haute, partyesque sensibility. The sleek line romanced the tone of lyrical magic fraught with ethereal and Greek goddess qualities.

The collection was well edited with chic garments that reflected fairytale brilliance. The color palette was steeped in ivory, slate and moss which created a feeling of serenity. Fetherston stepped away from her iconic baby dolls and favored slim silhouettes this season. But she did not sacrifice movement within the line. The clothing floated effortlessly down the runway and seemed to cast a spell of enchantment over the audience.

The pantsuit with pin tucked details was particularly memorable and the head pieces lent an artistic flair to the show. The models were particularly fresh faced with soft features that enhanced the clothing. Fetherston girls all sported white lashes which further promoted a dreamy quality that was ingeniously rooted in reality.

Every garment was an extension of Fetherston’s Flights of Fancy vision which worked to achieve a collection that was glossed in sophistication. This epic line was full of cool intensions that were saturated in everything beautiful.
