Fashion Week: Fringe

Top Designer Brooke Lynn Wright brings boho to new places with her on-point collection

I love fringe. And I love pink. I don't wear either often. And I certainly have never worn the two together. But, Brooke Lynn Wright could certainly change that.

The Top Design finalist presented a bevy of boho looks that brought a kind of uptown vibe to a collection that was strongly bohemian, a whole lotta hippie and felt utterly authentic in both veins.

The first dress out of the gate had this IND Styler's attention - perfectly placed rows of pink pink fringe that nearly gave the appearance of a shimmer so fluidly they moved. With pieces in the collection of rich mustard and a pair of jeans I'd wear every day of the week with a tank and some funky jewelry (and maybe my favorite floppy hat if it's a hat kind of day), Brooke managed to do design that looks every day wearable without being close to ordinary. The devil, you see, was in the details.

The looks were executed with a kind of quality and purpose that was clear despite the distressed vibe and lax attitude. But our absolute favorite piece on the runway wasn't hanging from a beautiful model. It came by way of Brooke's fantastic vest. As she walked the runway with her model, her presence was in a word - effervescent -and her look was in a word - flawless.
