A trail of fashion-goers crossed the West Side Highway to make their way to Pier 59 for a sneak peek into Katty Xiomara’s fall/ winter collection. The large space was packed to the brim with guests at the edge of their benches waiting for the drama of the lights turning off and right back on when the first look hits the runway. The show consisted of a more spring-time vibe; full of bright prints, whites, short dresses and short shorts. Sprinkled throughout the collection were a few darker shaded looks of hoodies and the occasional coat, paired with adorable tomboy-boots and heels. The designer is clearly a girl’s girl– the femininity shown broke up a lot of the dark monotony that many designers brought this season. It was a sunshine-meets-sophisticated lunch meeting kind of show.
