Something about spring screams “Girl Power.” The warm sun and the cool breeze seem to make everything seem brighter and lighter—like a woman. While Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week was during Valentine’s Day week, it naturally generated some springtime excitement. The top world-designers arrived in New York City a little before this awesome spring weather, it seemed to be the event to sweep out the frigid winter and ushered in some empowering pieces for this upcoming spring.
In addition to all the furs, feathers and lace, the runway also set the stage for a short fashion film, “The Woman In Me.” Capturing more than 7 days of fashion shows can be difficult in a four minute and 40 second film, but we women can do anything. It’s highly unlikely that anyone at E! News captured Marc Jacobs favorites and Betsey Johnson doing a cartwheel and split on stage, in one theatrical piece.
Award-winning, Italian composer, Ennio Morricone and vocalist Romina Arena’s dramatic arrangement, “The Woman In Me,” served as the one-track score for this film. Written by Arena herself, the song provides a feeling of review and closure—much like the highlights of your favorite T.V. drama in the last moments of the season finale. Farewell snow and brisk winds! You will not be missed.
While some designers were clearly completing their thoughts of winter, designers like the colorful Betsey Johnson gave us a taste of the warm season we’re anticipating. Pink bags and purple hair even set off her darker-colored pieces. There’s no better time to be a girl than Spring 2013. Especially with BJ’s fun new loungewear and huge weekender bags.
If you’re dreading the itchy nose and throat, look on the bright side. No pollen in the world can make you sneeze away the fact that you’re a woman. Embrace the woman in you and the bright spring fashions that await you!
