Elva Ramirez: A Romantic Spring 2011for Erin Fetherston

Seats at Erin Fetherston's 7 p.m. show at Milk Studios last night were in such demand that the show's jewelry designer (Yazbukey, according to the program) had a standing-room ticket. She nearly left, but stayed after publicists found seats for her and her two friends just before the show started.

Ms. Fetherston's spring line, "Birds of Paradise," follows the emerging trend of collections anchored in soft neutrals. The designer, known for her romantic, feminine styles, featured ivory, champagne and gold in the majority of her 32-look set.

Looks included a sophisticated ivory chiffon blouse, an ivory bow dress in ivory crepe and and a champagne silk crepe kimono. There were only two black dresses in the entire runway show.

Ms. Fetherston's color accents featured hues good enough to eat, such as a fresh lemongrass linen cap sleeve jacket and shorts, a parrot green dress and the stunning coral orange silk dress that closed the show.

Several dresses, in particular the strapless shimmery gold dress, seemed created to answer the perennial question that crops up each April: "What do I wear to a spring wedding?"
