Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief, US Vogue with designer Myra Nigris of HEMYCA
Anna Wintour, Editor-in-chief at US VOGUE, was the first to arrive at the presentation to preview the HEMYCA A/W2012 Collection. The collection, “A World of Glass”, was presented in the beautiful Great Room at 1508, in a mixture of static exhibition and live models wearing Mo Saïque Bonica boots in black which were loved by all the fashion directors.
Designers Helen Clinch and Myra Nigris walked through the collection with Anna, discussing each piece in detail. Anna was keen to learn more about HEMYCA, asking their thoughts on showing in New York and was interested to know which stores in New York stocked HEMYCA and where the designers would like to be stocked in the near future.
Each of the guests heavily praised the collection as a whole; with Anna Wintour exclaiming it as “beautiful” and that the presentation space was fantastic. The use of laser-cut leather and strong metals against delicate chiffon, faux fur and printed wools were hailed as brilliant and inspired by the guests.
