A group of female contemporary dancers staged an impressive performance at Phelan’s spring show, which was a celebration of women’s power. For her third effort, creative director Amanda Phelan offered an interesting, modern take on knitwear. Hyper-feminine knitted dresses with cutouts and chiffon ruffles, as well as tank tops paired with peplum skirts, were cut in body-conscious silhouettes and featured black-and-white graphic motifs.

Putting the focus on texture, the designer also delivered an asymmetric cotton dress with the bottom worked in tone-on-tone basket-weave jacquard, which exuded effortless elegance. She injected a playful touch via a range of frisky multicolor frocks and separates crafted from interwoven ribbons, while more casual outfits included a hybrid outerwear piece: a combination of a front-pocket jacket and a coat embellished with maxi-grommets and paired with wide-leg pants.
