Dresses have always been a strong suit for Fetherston, and they were the focus here. Among the standouts: a party frock in a metallic jacquard and a black cocktail number whose sequined skirt was veiled with a layer of organza (an attempt to explore sparkle with subtlety that worked). On the other hand, it's evident that the designer is also upping the ante on the separates front. Tailored shorts paired with a fuchsia collared blouse will be fundamental when riding out the final waves of next summer.
