Erin Fetherston's Spring 2012 brought the designer's flair for femininity in a bright, citrus-splashed return to the '60s. The presentation at Milk Studios on Saturday popped with bright lights and bold color — models poised perfectly in sky-high platforms, with bold smoky eyes, and perfect pink pouts to echo the nod to the swinging '60s sweetness. Fetherston played in a bold palette, fashioning up standout mod minis in white, black, and tangerine colorblocking and orange ruffled tiers, then showing a splash of girlie prints. First, pink butterflies on slim white pants, then softer butterflies in purple and black on a flowy maxi dress. To complement the super girlie, Fetherston gave separates in soft, sheer white button-downs and printed and solid shorts and pants for a presentation that's as sweet as it is smart.
