The Haley Manochi Spring/Summer 2020 Collection was part of the Oxford Fashion Studio shows at Pier 59 Studios. For the show Haley Manochi, a Brooklyn based designer, showcased 6 looks for the collection, inspired by an American born dancer by the name of Loie Fuller.
Loie Fuller, a pioneer of the Art Nouveau movement of the late 1800’s, was known for her innovation in both dance and lighting effects that was revolutionary in the art world of Paris during the time. Loie Fuller’s vision and story have been extremely inspiring for this collection. The use of colored lighting on yards of white fabric created an illusion of the cloth changing colors as she danced.
Throughout the Haley Manochi show, it was apparent of the use of flowing light off white/ beige fabrics and the metallic fabrics in hues of rose gold.
Loie Fuller was a woman with a clear idea and passion that she followed without question. Her life and artistic vision are the inspiration for this SS20 collection and it is shown in the Haley Manochi Show.
