The Erin Fetherston Spring 2009 collection was the epitome of flawless beauty and ethereal innocence. Entitled, “East of the Sun and West of the Moon,” the clothing reflected Fetherston’s interpretation of the New York and Parisian skylines. The designer drew from her own experiences to create a collection that literally floated down the runway. Cloud inspired garments and asymmetrical cuts were saturated in organza, georgette, boucle, chiffon, rainbow washes, opalescent sequins, and tiers of ombre.

The light color palette set the tone for a transporting experience that sent show-goers to a land of fairy tale perfection. The lime twilight ombre tiered cloud dress and gathered lilac organza cloud hem dress were standout pieces that existed in a delicious bubble of flouncy-bohemia . Fetherston even gave running shorts a delicate sensibility with boucle and a sunburst print. The hair was slicked back with natural makeup that kept the looks youthful and fresh. This styling placed emphasis on the clothing and further cemented the show as the official return to pretty for Spring 2009.
