New York, NY — September 9, 2023 — On Friday, September 8, the world of fashion was treated to a mesmerizing spectacle as Gita Omri presented her highly anticipated fashion show, "Marriage is Wonderland," as part of New York Fashion Week. With a theme that explored the intricate dynamics of relationships, Omri's collection enchanted the audience with a captivating blend of 70s disco glam and 80s pop, intricately crafted trompe l'oeil detailing, and a stunning array of design elements, including button as pattern detailing, color blocking, metallic print florals, "halfsies" dresses, and shimmering sequins.
The fashion extravaganza was a remarkable journey through the complexities of love, expressed through a diverse range of fashion statements. The color palette, ranging from sultry navy and enigmatic black to sophisticated grey and a full spectrum of pinks, added depth and emotion to each carefully curated ensemble.
One of the standout features of the "Marriage is Wonderland" collection is its commitment to inclusivity. Gita Omri's collection celebrates beauty in all its forms, and it was evident that her designs were made to be embraced by people of all sizes. The size-inclusive nature of the collection underscored Omri's dedication to ensuring that everyone could find a piece that resonated with their personal style.
"Marriage is Wonderland" was not just a display of artistic expression but a reflection of the intricate tapestry of human emotions and relationships that define our lives. It celebrated the beauty of imperfection, the dance of contrasts, and the wonder of love in all its forms.
"With this collection, I wanted to explore these concepts through using the grey and rose color stories as the visual representations of the complexities of being in a long-term relationship. Just like in Wonderland, you never know what or who is going to come around the next bend. All you can expect is whatever will come your way will be wonderful in its own way and as long as you travel together you will always be home," said designer Gita Omri. "It's joy, and ecstasy, its laughter, and pleasure and pain, and anger, and deep deep love, and annoyance, and elation, and disdain, and wonderful!!!"
