Different from seasons past, there was some structure to Fulton's flow, via a brilliant boned dress in black and white and some short, boxy jackets. Similarly strong were the accessories. (Don't forget, Fulton considers herself equal part accessories designer.) The fan-shaped handbags, orchid-detailed chokers, and necklaces were brilliant. And we must give a nod to the elasticized-waist "track" pants: The elastic did not deter from the tailoring at all, and it means that carbs are back on the menu!
If she faltered at all, it was with a few pieces in a color called Tangerine Fish. On paper, that sounds intriguing, but they were a dull brown that brought down the separates they were teamed with. That weakness was quickly forgiven, though, by a showpiece dress made from cork and embellished with crystals, and jackets whipped up from tinsel. Fulton isn't just a print innovator, she's a pretty sharp hand at fabric, too.
