Jay Godfrey gave an impressive installation based on lux Western styles amplified with lace, quilting and the oh so familiarity of fringe.
We love the concept described in the program:
The electric west draws from the influences of late 60’s and early rock and rollers who infused country and western tones…
We felt the rock and roll vibe with the one woman band who played the drums and the guitar at one point at the same time. Haystacks and barrels completed the look. Godfrey’s first venture into denim was too similar to GUESS but his combination of lace and fringe was what stole the show.
Sequin played a role in the collection. From full sequins gowns to suit, but they seemed out of place in the wild west.
All in all, we love Godfrey in the fall, but his spring collection only had a few gold nuggets. At least, he made the west more fashionable.
