It is apt that Cynthia Rowley showed her collection in a space etched with the words, "Denial cultivates the sense of order… that broadens the mind." At first, Rowley seemed to toe the line of asceticism by using base elements like slashed canvas in natural wheat to an almost mysterious effect. But as the show progressed, the bare, orderly looks gave way to sumptuous sequins and hand-painted silks, lush spring greens and violets that drenched rockabilly-chic dresses.
