Houghton "The Fall/Winter 2017 "Not Your Baby" collection was inspired by successful, sexy and strong real women. I personally invited 9 other Houghton Girls to participate in a fashion film to feature and present the new FW17 collection and then designed looks with each individual woman's personal style in mind. After doing so many seasons of the traditional runway show, I felt compelled to take on an inspiring project and add meaning to what I was designing. The women explore how they cope with the unrealistic standards and pressures that so many women face in their daily lives while modeling looks from the collection. I also collaborated with Lulu Frost on a custom capsule collection of chokers and earrings for the film." — Katharine Polk

Van Dyck, Rubens and El Greco portrayed numerous women in all their different styles: heroines, dreamers, warriors, romantic, luxurious; these women were posing innocently or looking abstracted within sublime sceneries. As the notorious artists, Yolan Cris wants to make an homage to the feminine universe through the new Studio Collection. — Yolan Cris
