Carolina Herrera’s spring collection was a twist of east-meets-west as she tells the tale of being inspired by Korean evening wear. When novice designers attempt to make similar fusions, the result is often costume-like and awkward. This was certainly not the case with Carolina’s masterful talents. The gowns and dresses were as exquisite as one would expect but the twist in details made each design all the more interesting.
