Houghton NYC Spring 2014 Runway #MBFW #NYFW

Whimsical. That’s the word I feel describes the Houghton NYC Spring 2014 fashion line. Light pastels. Flowing dresses. The feeling was very fairy-land like and being outdoors definitely helped. You’ll find a few ready-to-wear outfits in this line up too. Photography: Yours Truly – Rita P. Cheng / Pui Pui Photography

Layers of chiffon dyed and molded to look like the innards of a geode or the frothy crests of waves. Illusion tops. Degrade beading. Mirrored belts. My favorite detail was the mint-colored […]
