Nicola Glass made her second big splash at the Kate Spade Fall 2019 ready-to-wear show. The brand showcased a collection that echoed the pretty prints and sparkle of her initial debut last September, but with a remixed '70s flair that feels equal parts modern and majestic.
Once the show started, models dressed in a sea of vibrant hues, leopard prints, colorful tights and chic turbans paraded down the runways as guests marveled at all of the fresh looks.
"For Fall 2019, I started by imagining raiding an insanely glamorous woman's closet and the rich, eclectic mix you'd find that you could make your own," Glass told "Good Morning America." I was inspired by the idea of a woman's closet -- the thought of where clothes end up rather than where they originated."
"This season, I envisioned women who are looking for clothes that are spirited, feminine and fundamentally effortless. There's a soft glamour to this collection ... an easy fluidity," she continued.
Glass started with Kate Spade New York a little over a year ago and has found a way to elevate the brand without losing sight of its rich origins.
"We are focusing on the new house codes we introduced for spring/summer as we move into fall -- always keeping the brand's core DNA in mind -- while staying true to our brand promise: optimistic femininity," she explained.
In addition to the updated, soft glamour '70s vibes of clothes, the makeup, hair, nails, and overall scenery were the other amazing elements that also helped pulled everything together.
New York City's famous Cipriani restaurant was turned into a lilac lover's dream with matching carpet, fur seats and a time machine-like glass rotunda at the center of the venue.
For makeup, key artist Romy Soleimani for Maybelline pointed out in a statement that the rust-toned eyeshadow and lipstick were nods to the '70s but in a thoroughly modern, 2019 way. While lead hairstylists Odile Gilbert and Justine Marjan for TRESemmé perfectly detailed the hair for the show with two words: "'70s sophisticate."
Manicurist Julie Kandalec for Essie created nail looks that mimicked the shimmery stockings seen on the runway and had a clear base that was topped with subtle dots of bronze glitter.
Glass was also thrilled to work with actresses Julia Garner, Sadie Skink and KiKi Layne, who all sat front and center and are the 2019 campaign faces of this season's show.
"As a brand, we encourage women to be the heroines of their own story and these three women are truly the heroines of their own stories," said Glass. "The brand is a celebration of women across time zones, generations and style creeds who are living their individual lives to the fullest and believe that, together, everything is possible."
So, what's next for the popular America fashion house?
"As a whole, we’ll continue to elevate our assortment and evolve core concepts with new takes on thoughtful design techniques," said Glass.
The full Kate Spade New York collection will be available to shop this fall.
