Yesterday evening, I had the chance to attend the show for Emily Muller’s collection at Boston Fashion Week. I arrived early and snagged a cupcake, and then made use of the media room, which was open to members of the press. I worked on photos that I had taken at the last show as I waited with other members of media for Emily Muller to start. As it got closer to showtime, we were led to The Tent and then seated. Unlike the first show I attended, I was placed in the second row, which made taking photos a bit more difficult. I also sat on a different side of the runway, which gave me a different view of The Tent.
The runway show began with a presentation of Sophie Hughes Jewelry, a line of sculptural, contemporary jewelry. Hughes’s hand-forged jewelry is made primarily from recycled metals. The models wore black maxi dresses to set off the gold and silver jewelry.
After the jewelry presentation finished, the Emily Muller show began. Muller’s collection consisted of feminine dresses in various lengths. The models’ hair was styled in elaborate braids and adorned with ribbons or braided ropes that resembled flowers from afar, giving the overall look a sweet vibe.
Muller stayed with a mainly neutral and hunter green palette. The dresses included lace and ribbon detailing as well as empire waists. Constructed of sheer and satiny fabric, the dresses flowed as the models walked down the runway, revealing a hint of curves here and there. I especially liked the long, white dress with the ruched, green panel down the front. Overall, Emily Muller was a very, very pretty collection, and I would love to own any of the pieces!
