From embellished cocktail dresses to organic cotton separates with multiple uses in mind, the new offerings cover the range.
Thursday, Sept. 9, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., The Standard — High Line Room, 442 West 13th Street, 3rd Floor.
Taking inspiration from the American west and Kerouac’s “On the Road,” Brooklyn-based Rae, a Parsons the New School for Design alum whose résumé includes stints at Costume National and Morgane Le Fay, relies heavily on romantic styles with touches of chiffon ruffles and lace trim on flowing dresses, as well as utilitarian styles such as a chambray shirtdress and a loose hemp tank dress.
