DAY FIVE: TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2022
BY GARY WASSNER
I was literally blown away by this collection. So incredibly stylish. Each outfit spoke to me. The personality in the clothing is sublime. I interviewed Marrisa after the show and she is just like her clothing. Easy. Laid back. Confident. Cool. She told me she wanted each model to do their own thing on the runway and ‘feel’ the vibe of the outfits they wore. And they did with individuality and savior faire—sure of themselves.
The construction of each piece was impeccable. Tailoring prevailed. I couldn’t take my eyes off of the jackets which she paired with many of the outfits in different prints. They exuded style and ease. Tight pleats for some of the dresses and skirts complimented the softness of the knits and outerwear perfectly.
Marrisa Wilson was a joyful discovery for me. Her designs stood out from the crowded runways of the season. She filled the room with beauty, effortlessly telling her story. It is always a great pleasure for me to see a collection as young and fresh and sophisticated as this one was. I left feeling uplifted and optimistic about the future of our great industry. Thank you Marrisa Wilson. You are one I will be watching for sure.
