Barbara Tfank Shows Aristocratic Sophistication
On a cold Friday morning, Barbara Tfank brought elegance, grace and sophistication to New York City’s most stylish by presenting her Fall/Winter 2018 collection. With the fine furnishings of Greenwhich Village’s Maison Gerard as the backdrop, Tfank’s use of delicate florals, muted jewel tones and classic silhouettes complimented the surroundings effortlessly and maintained an environment of glamour and luxury without looking pretentious.
The layering of the embellished fabrics displays Tfank’s intense attention to detail and technique. The silhouettes, ranging from classy formal two-pieces to mid-length cocktail dresses, nods to a ‘60s-style aesthetic and is fit for the most decadent of formal occasions. She offers embroidered opera coats and refined tea length gowns that encompass the season while still having a fun and lively mood. Each model’s look was also completed with beautiful headpieces provided by Monvieve and the perfect pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes that added flawless finishing touches to bring each ensemble to life.
“The opera coat I have chosen to show this season can be worn at any event, formal or informal. It is a classic piece that every French-inspired woman should own!” comments Tfank on one of her premier pieces.
As the rosé and champagne flowed, viewers referred to Tfank’s mood board to discover that Mexican art served as an inspiration for the embroidery and floral aspects of the garments. Viewers also saw she was heavily inspired by classic vintage profiles through her chic cut of necklines and use of long black gloves.
