What: Designer Cynthia Rowley showcased the Spring 2019 collection with a collective of freestyle dance skaters.

Where: Cynthia Rowley Showroom, 16 Morton Street, New York City
Why: To unveil the Cynthia Rowley Spring 2019 collection, the brand hosted an experiential show featuring a collective of freestyle dance skaters.

Collection Statement: We shot our lookbook against an out-of-this-world backdrop. There’s nothing more magical than a full moon…the glow of the moon against soft metallics, the weightlessness of a ruffled dress. If you asked me when I was kid what I wanted to be when I grew up, fashion was light years from my mind. I wanted to be an astronaut – the ultimate adventure.

I’ve always thought one theme, one inspiration was an antiquated idea. Why limit yourself? Fashion should have no boundaries and when you wear the clothes they should never hold you back from any experience.
There’s been a lot of talk recently about the underrepresentation of women in fashion leadership roles. This is something that has always been important to me. These are cool, fearless women – strong, talented athletes following their passion…that’s real inspiration to me. Let’s roll

ABOUT GRETA CONSTANTINE 

CAFA 2016 Womenswear Designer of the Year winner Greta Constantine is an accessible luxury line of ready-to-wear womenswear based in Toronto, Canada. Designers Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong, considered the “jersey boys of Toronto,” have rapidly accumulated a clientele comprised of international socialites and celebrities alike. The label itself is derived from the combination of the name of Stephen’s mother, Greta, with that of Kirk’s grandfather, Constantine. The pair works together in their Toronto area studio — conceptualizing, exploring, and challenging the fashions of today for the women of tomorrow.

The inevitable product of their focus on the female form is design emboldened by sexuality. Yet sexuality and femininity more generally, are socially constructed in a dichotomous manner: ladylike or seductive; prim and pretty or body-skimming and revealing. However, for Pickersgill and Wong, these dichotomies mustn’t be treated as mutually exclusive properties. In the elegantly seductive world of Greta Constantine, it’s not surprising to see a backless top paired with a flared, midi-length skirt or a boxy, ruffle hem sleeveless dress that barely grazes mid-thigh in a shade of salmon, no less. And while the dresses themselves may be constricting to the female form, there’s something truly freeing about wearing a piece that is equal parts matron and vixen. After all, sometimes you just want to be both.
