Inspired by Hansel and Gretel as a dark fairy tale, the stage was set with lace topped trees adorning the walls for Twinkle by Wenlan’s Fall/Winter 2010 Collection. As the music began to play, the audience was taken to a place that brought each of the characters to life in the tale.
Shades of moss, olive green, mustard yellow, and many other deep beautiful colors created a palette reminiscent of a tale set in a forest. Shiny on matte, geometric prints, sheer fabrics and vintage wool made it’s way through the collection to create pieces that told the tale perfectly.
Short looks dominated the runway in prints and silhouettes that flattered. Chunky knits and collars, along with layered pieces, gave a 3-dimensional feel to some of the pieces. Skinny pants, paired with gorgeous coats, hooded tops and sweaters, and dresses, remind us how easy it is to look beautiful in the Fall.
The tale was told and I was enchanted!
