NYFW Presentation: Norisol Ferrari Fall 2012
The Norisol Ferrari presentation was one that took me back in time in what the designer describes as Jean Harlow meets Tina Turner in Mad Max. There were dramatic silhouettes that made me think a little bit of Charles Worth-esque (late 1900s) glamor while other items that made me think of something a very put together Goth might enjoy.
Since the designer grew up in NY in the 80s and was nurtured by drag queens and nightlife impresarios the flair for the dramatic in silhouette and line must be second nature. Strategically placed seams and color blocking flatter the silhouette and place emphasis on a tiny waist.
