If you’re awesome at what you do and nice to your friends, they will oftentimes turn into your best publicists. At about midnight last night, a friend of mine was psyched enough to pass along the newest work from her pal, Rebecca Formichella. As a recent SCAD grad, one would be surprised to find the substantial following she’s already earned herself. But after perusing her most recent shoot, it appeared that her testimonials were the result of more than just social courtesy.
She is really just that fabulous.
In her most recent collaboration with Rita Watson, Formichella combines romance and audacity – but not in the exhausted ballerina-gone-bad motif. Instead, she injects sophistication and austerity into her romantic theme. Her collection conjures a woman who is not rebellious, but rather instinctively and subtly dangerous.
And subtly is key, as Rebecca effortlessly works lace and softer trims into deconstructed menswear. By placing bows and voluminous gathers on the backs of dresses, she achieves a dreamy, yet candid experience.
