Patrons attending the Fall 2018 presentation by Jamaican-born New York designer Glenroy March were effusive of praise for House of D’Marsh which unveiled its Fall 2018 collection during New York Fashion Week (NYFW), recently. The lobby of trendy and elegant Row NYC Hotel was transformed into an autumn setting with leaves strewn around area, serving as the perfect backdrop for Cygne de L’automne.According to the designer, the all-white Fall 2018 collection was inspired by his visit to China. “During my visit to China last year for my first show, I saw the swans for which I have an affinity. It was then that I received my inspiration to put together this year’s collection. I was moved by the grace and elegance of the long-necked birds and the manner in which they greeted each other and wanted to capture that along with the beauty of their feathers,” noted March.
The 12-piece collection embodies the years of mastered craftsmanship and comprised a mix of looks ranging from cocktail dresses to formal dresses and evening gowns for today’s woman to shirts and jackets, paired with kilts for the trendy and outgoing man.
The presentation was a total team effort with support from Theo Hanson, creative producer/director; DaNisha Green, stylist and makeup by Neveen Dominic.
