Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week NY Spring ’11. Rebecca Moses as a Fairytale

September 16, 2010 • Magazine










Summary: Rebecca Moses’ Spring '11 presentation was an Alice in Wonderland scale library. According to the designer, "I love to tell a story…fashion is such a colorful tale." Since she thought of her models as characters in a book, mini vignette were decorated all around the room with giants books propped against the walls. One was open in the middle of the room with a model laying across it. The setting evoked an old French library where one is encouraged to use their imagination much like a child might.

Groups of models posed in front of giant books with backdrops such as "Once Upon a Time" "Giza and the Pyramids" and "Biarritz…by the Sea." each evoking a different style and feel.
