Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2014 Runway Show

Cushnie et Ochs, Ready to Wear, Spring Summer, 2014, New York

With just five years under their belt as a design team, female duo Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs sent a solid collection down the Spring ’14 runway that spoke volumes about the power of femininity and the female silhouette.

Opening the show, American supermodel Karlie Kloss towered over the crowd in a white asymmetrical knee length dress with cutouts along the waistline that exuded much attitude and commanded respect.

Attention was placed on the female neckline with lots of bare shoulders in halter-top dresses, plunge front pieces, and an occasional swimsuit for the woman who is not afraid to show a little skin.

Staying within a mostly black and white theme (which has remained popular over the past few seasons), there were a few grays and neutrals along with a beautiful deep violet that blended into the color way.

Being one of a handful of designers who included a diverse range of models on the runway, this pair sent a refreshing message that their brand appeals to women of all races.

Closing the show with crowd favorite, Chanel Iman, in a floor length silk gown made for an unforgettable finish while reassuring spectators that these two are most definitely at the top of their game.
