Leave it to the fab team behind Greta Constantine to make high-school chic by throwing a perfect end-of-summer Poolside Prom bash complete with Prom Kings and Queens, cheerleaders, and glam frocks. Speaking of beautiful clothes, models moved through the venue wearing pieces from the brand’s spring/summer 2017 collection which will be presented during Paris Fashion Week in October. But from the sneak peek that we got, I can already tell that it’s going to be one gorgeous collection.
“Models donned silk tulle overlays featuring voluminous sleeve detailings, boned bustiers, and exaggerated ruffles, atop rust-, metal-, and copper-hued slip dresses. The silk tulle pieces were in fact translated from existing silhouettes in the duo’s signature microfiber and silk wool fabrications from the Greta Constantine spring 2017 collection. The minimalist-maximalist tension that underlined each look, as well as the emphasis on semi-transparent fabrications, loaned a darkly romantic air as night fell and the temperature rose.”
Prom guests sipped Apothic Wine and Proof Vodka, nibbled on hot dogs and caviar-topped chips, and posed for the Yearbook Selfie Wall. I pasted my selfie over the spot that read “The Next Coco Chanel”, and even though it’s not exactly true, it felt good to dream big at Poolside Prom.
