Erin Fetherston may have gone out on a limb booking soon-to-be pop star Alexandra McDermott, just 17, as her lookbook model and presentation entertainment, but she also took a risk with her label's Spring lineup. "I brought in a lot of hardware to balance out the froth and lighter-than-air fabrics," the designer said in a preview. What she meant was that her girly aesthetic got a little tougher. Minidresses were given the body-con treatment while flowy maxi gowns were contrasted with leatherlike bodices. A pink leather jacket decorated with silver floral grommets—the Erin Fetherston interpretation of moto chic—was paired with slick leather leggings. The prints were equally edgy, ranging from a black and white sequined zebra motif to a lipstick pattern made up of lip smooches from all the girls on the designer's team. In the dress category, the highlight was a "snake charmer" sheath number with a crystal serpent embellishment that wrapped around the back from the shoulder to the waist. But overall, the collection's winning look was a slouchy pantsuit in a nude pink hue with lime green trimming. It could very well turn the Fetherston girl into a pant-lover just yet.
