NYFW Cynthia Rowley (part two)

Scene: Spring/Summer 2022, with a sunset Lady Liberty view from the tip of Manhattan’s Wagner Park. “I’m slightly Y2K-obsessed, but not too much,” designer Cynthia Rowley said following her playful and feminine show. Rowley combined her various categories — swim and surf, girly occasion and daywear, and sporty leisure layers into one collection that embodied wearable, optimistic, and fun styles with just enough of a nod to the early 2000s. The nod came in the form of butterfly and floral motifs, chunky crystal jewelry and embellishments, and a girly, bright palette. Spring was one of Rowley’s most cohesive collections in recent seasons and a celebratory return to New York Fashion Week.
Talent for the show: Hair by lead hairstylist Rodney Cutler of Cutler Salons and team. Makeup by lead makeup artist Cassandra Garcia and team for Bobbi Brown.

Scene: Cassandra Garcia, lead makeup artist for Bobbi Brown, comments on the makeup direction “Pretty, rosy, with a soft pink eyeliner complemented with a soft glowing rose lip.”
Scene: Rodney Cutler, lead hairstylist of Cutler Salons, comments on the hair direction “Elegant, deconstructed, a return to glamour with a young attitude.”
Scene: New 3D printed, made-to-order, futuristic wedges, which Rowley explained were the result of trying to find a more sustainable and manageable solution to her current shoe business.
Scene: Cynthia Rowley said postshow “Sexy! Sexy for sure, right? Haven’t we been waiting a lot of time to be sexy?
