Cynthia Rowley Spring 2012: Glittering Gold and Lindsay Lohan

Designer Cynthia Rowley certainly changed up her usually quirky conservative style this season.Her Spring 2012 collection was young, edgy, powerful and beautifully artistic. Clearly trying to reach a younger, hipper downtown crowd,  Rowley’s show was described as a “flash mobs of floral and animated shapes”  alive with bold painterly patterns, glittering gold hues and fabulous texture. The leggings were to die for, the silk A-Line dresses were breathtaking, the blazers were chic and the rock n roll inspired leather mesh tops and skirts surprised everyone.

Every detail Rowley created this season seamed to turn to gold- literally. Modeled marched down a midus touched gold metallic runway accessorize in patchwork doctor bags to belts to flash lens eye-wear.
