The word ethereal is overused, but in the case of Fetherston, it's apt. Pleated chiffon dresses—in mint, cherry, and nude—were offset by starry sequins on their bodices. A gold metallic jacquard laid over an abstract polka dot almost resembling a leopard print lent a bit of sexiness to a goddess gown. And an out-of-her-comfort-zone black body-con number was made feminine with an overlay of shimmering rose gold lace. Try as she might've once upon a time, Fetherston never really stretches beyond pretty in her work. Over the past couple of years, and certainly this season, it feels like she's accepted that. She owns her fate. And it looks lovely.
