NYFW: Leanne Marshall FW16 Collection

Set against a stark white background and a runway venue filled with anticipation, I had a front row seat to see Leanne Marshall’s latest collection at New York Fashion Week. Since her win at Project Runway several years ago, she has made a name for herself as a premiere fashion designer and this collection elevated her status even higher.

The words that came to mind were ethereal, fluidity and fantasy. While her collection was a mix of both cocktail length dresses and flowing gowns, the latter caught my attention and it never wavered.
