A city wide power outage occurred as we were filing in for the Zimmerman show. All fashion week shows were then postponed until the power came back on. Luckily the shortage lasted only an hour, long enough to have a drink or three in the Rosemount Wine Bar. The collection that was finally shown was well worth the wait.
Zimmerman's summer colour palate was a refreshing change from the jarring brights we have seen from them in the past. What was presented felt more grown up, more refined, and very classy. We saw Grecian folds of fabric in warm creams and light earth tones, muted Nana-inspired florals, and a brilliantly refined version of their flesh exposing strapping that was noticeable on their bikinis last year.
