Multi-colored furs, shimmery evening gowns, and feather details dominated the runway at the Pamella Roland’s Fall 2017 show. Rich shades of ‘tobacco, amethyst, garnet, moss, onyx, and aubergine,’ in custom printed fabrics took the audience’s breath away with their timeless, classic look. Mixing of leather cut-out pants with bedazzled waistlines and hints of earth toned feathers gives us the perfect combination of femininity and edge.
Roland delivered across the board on work appropriate velvet separates, and sultry gowns for a big night out. These staple pieces can easily transition through the seasons. On the more upscale end of her designs were whimsical, billowing dresses made of devore, stretch crepe, and mesh organza. A white feather embellished gown stood out with its fairytale-esque nature. Complimenting the collection was the use of stunning hair and makeup.
The models wore their hair in waves that draped down their back. Makeup dramatically dressed up their eyes, and a pop of red lipstick brought the rich colors of the collection together. Overall, this show stunned with a wide range of textures, architectural pieces that any girl would enjoy wearing.
