Large floral motifs, wave prints and surfboard and scuba details played major roles in Araks Yeramyan’s lineup. Inspired by nighttime in Hawaii, the designer worked the ideas into beautifully sculpted jackets, dresses, tops and pants done in a dark palette (bottle green, purplish-blue, brown) meant to mimic moonlight. Yeramyan manipulated her bonded fabrics with expert pleating and tucking for rounded forms and employed curved seaming — to mirror a surfboard’s silhouette — for extra shape on dresses. Even the ends of sleeves featured fluid “fins” like those on the bottom of a board.
