Ready To Wear White
A look at the Spring 2017 Ready-to-Wear collection from Zero + Maria Cornejo
New York Fashion Week is in full swing, giving stylish outlooks on Spring 2017. Next to the vibrant collections by Proenza Schouler, Rosie Assoulin or Jonathan Saunders’ first designs for Diane von Furstenberg, the very reduced show of Zero + Maria Cornejo left a big impression.
Chilean-born designer Maria Cornejo staged an almost “all white” show this season. Her models walked barefoot down the runway, in flowing garments clearly focussing on cutting and fabric. That is to say, for the Spring 2017 collection the designer used a special rayon made out of wood pulp, sourced by renewable forests.
Since the beginning of the company the collections have been produced in New York City with just a few exceptions. Handbags and shoes for instance are made by small manufacturers in Italy. Wherever possible, Zero + Maria Cornejo uses ecological and sustainable materials, which guarantees her our attention – especially and even more if the designs look so fantastic! Have a look yourself.
