Cynthia Rowley was a parade of dreamy dresses and broken-glass sequins on a backdrop of Gotham Hall’s Ballroom, especially haunted for the proceedings. Everything was draped in huge white sheets and models emerged from a dilapidated stage like darling little ghosts with tightly curled bangs. As always, the clothes were the purest interpretation of pretty.

See the full collection here. My photos from the runway and backstage, below.

Backstage, I got a close-up glimpse of the garments before they were bagged and hauled out. Look at these beautiful sequins! I even ran into some friends working as dressers.

I also spotted Waris Ahluwalia and decided to pop over and ask him a few questions about what he had for breakfast. He drinks smoothies, in case you’re wondering!

He was whisked away before I could get a photo. I know, I’m working on my interviewer skills. ;}
