StyleWeek Providence: Jennifer Greeke & Kelly Eident

Friday, January 21, 2011

 

What a night at the Biltmore!

Jennifer Greeke

We started out the night with Jennifer Greeke, who presented a collection from her design house, named Harpy, with a style that was impeccably tailored while being flirty and whimsical. Harpy has been described as “a women’s high-end fashion line dedicated to bringing strong feminine clothing with a slight edge to its stylish customers.” Models evoked a European sense of style with charming hats crowning many looks and touches of elegance while paying homage to Greeke’s costume design background in New York City. An indication of an exceptional showing, she left the crowd wanting more.

Kelly Eident

The second designer to present was Kelly Eident, a RISD grad who’s most recent collection under her “I'm Your Present” label can best be described as Thoroughly Modern Millie meets Chicago. The very theatrical line, very well put together, included fu and fringe detailing, marabou feathers in the hair and jeweled accessories.

I’ve attended many fashion shows from coast to coast, and I have to say Rhode Island did me proud. Just scanning the room, we had a wonderful blend of eccentric designers, bloggers, fashionistas and stylish locals. I felt like I was in New York City. StyleWeek is proving to be a great event, and a great fit, for Providence.
