runway fashion show – photo coverage
spring summer 2006
women’s clothing collection
Olympus New York Fashion Week
Dear Gorgeous Darlings,
Designer Charles Nolan’s spring collection’s inspiration comes from a photo of his grandmother on her wedding day andmore recently, of his niece on the day of her first Communion. Both images reflect ceremony, tradition, joy, and dressing for the occasion…(content continues below…)
…Nolan’s collection portrays the refined and deliberate elegance of yesteryear with a modern bend, complete with oversized, lightweight millinery that has sun protection in mind and featherweight, oversized papier-mache pearls inspired by Maharajas’ Jewels. Lovely, refined, and elegant!
A special note of kindness goes to frontrower Mary Kerry, sister of John, who took the time to appreciate my young son’s collection of pro-Kerry political cartoons which he carries. -S. H.
