Brandon R. Dwyer’s first post-Project Runway effort was one of a few truly summery collection we’ve seen this season. Almost every piece—with the exception of the bustier dress (yes, more bustiers!) and some out-of-place taffeta frocks—could be worn over a bathing suit and with a pair of flip flops, and the wearer would look effortless and fresh. The loose-fitting sheer floor-length dress at left is the perfect piece for a night out in Miami. We also quite liked his soft-handed use of teal and coral, two really flattering shades, on the knit dresses. Fashion week may have been heavily weighted with PR alumni but we don’t mind as much when they hold their own.
