Rachel Antonoff Spring 2012

My favorite presentation every season is Rachel Antonoff. It's not just the clothes (although those suit my aesthetic quite nicely), but it's partly because you don't know what to expect. Her creative vision took us to prom last season and now we're welcomed to the "Antonoff Manor." It is a creepy dollhouse complete with pet cemetery. The beauty backstage was Wednesday Addams inspired (slick braids and shadowed eyes with nearly bare faces) and the many of the girls were even given creepy props to pose with. It's this sort of presentation that gives you a peek into the designer's mind; we don't need to decipher references through music choices (although Tennessee Thomas was spinning tunes), but are instead transported into fantasy world.
