Spring/Summer 2015 marked Karolyn Pho’s fifth season and her sophomore runway endeavor, held last night at Pier 59 Studios. This season, the main character in Karolyn Pho’s story is a vagabond. We follow her as she meanders through castles in the air, traipses between realities and crosses unknown borders. She is a nomad, a traveler, lost within her own self-perception. As with seasons past there is an underlying vein of masculinity running throughout Pho’s collection.
This season she aims to further abstract the conditioned perception of femininity and masculinity, with a color palette inspired by the Med-Deco architecture of Miami. The collection featured sky blue pinafore day dresses and racerback tank dresses, while Pho’s first foray into sequins as debuted in patch dresses and sequin back t-shirts.
