With such lovely, pretty dresses embroidered in beautiful flowers, flowing cascades of chiffon and tiers of lace parading down the runway it is hard to imagine the inspiration, Erdem Moralioglu, had for this lavish prairie collection: “It was about prairie madness,” he explained backstage. “In 1862, Abraham Lincoln passed the Homestead Act, which gave single women and widows the right to their own plots of land in the West, as long as they stayed there for five years. So there were all these women coming from their homes in Europe, bringing their clothes and the remnants of their lives in Norway and Germany and places like that—and they started to suffer from agoraphobia and all kinds of psychological illnesses.” It brought to mind, The Homesman, last year’s highly praised but little seen movie with Hilary Swank and Tommy Lee Jones, about such a woman.

Yes, the dresses were anything but dreary. Beautiful long fitted embroidered coats, organza maxi and midi dresses with tiers of ruffles, embroidered flowers and tiny buttons (some of which appeared to be coming apart at the shoulders), and Victorian high-necked dresses with oodles of lace and bell sleeves will have many pretty woman gracing the streets. Especially breathtaking were the millefeuille waves of organza — white, black, seafoam — that closed the show.
