With gargoyles overhead and a gold metallic stage at their feet, the models of Mathieu Mirano donned a collection of fantastical proportions. The Sunday evening presentation took place in the Box at Lincoln Center, attracting a long line of industry insiders.
“I am surprised by the turnout,” Mirano modestly confessed, eyes sparkling with youthful enthusiasm. The 20-year-old designer achieved substantial attention for his SS 2012 collection and his debut show had followed suit. Inspired by “legendary dragon riders,” the room was complete with red fur jackets, midnight blue glittering gowns, and floor-grazing velvets.
Surely, the designer responsible for such a well-executed and imaginative presentation should be able to toast his first Fashion Week success with the appropriate adult beverage. Here’s to hoping Mathieu’s fake ID is as flawless has his AW 2012 collection.
