NYFW: Ornate Delicacy at Sophie Zinga SS’14
The Sophie Zinga Spring/Summer 2014 collection, Rose and Leaves, was very delicate and feminine. The line of cocktail dresses and showstopper strapless jumpsuit was filled with whites, vivid pinks, lavenders and tiedye prints. Held at the London Hotel, this presentation was one to remember.
A very interesting element of the collection was the big array of textures throughout the different garments. You will find lace, chiffon, and sateen among other fabrics; as well as textures created by pleating.
Some of my favorite looks from this romantic collection were a pretty white lace cocktail dress, and a bright pink sheath dress perfect for a garden party or romantic date in the spring. Sophie Zinga’s collection also included an Aline wedding gown with pleating and a delicate tulle overlay to appeal to the fashionforward future bridetobe.
This collection was a feast of feminine simplicity brought to life by color, and detail. The tiedye on lace, draping, pleats and the beautiful selection of fabrics make these dresses an elegant addition to anyone’s closet.
Definitely a source of inspiration for the future bride or one looking for a cocktail gown in the future. You can learn more about Sophie Zinga here!
