Dinner and a show has become Rachel Comey’s charming presentation format. She served three courses and three distinct groups of clothes in Dustin Yellin’s Pioneer Works space in Red Hook, Brooklyn, setting a very personal atmosphere that complemented the line. Without encouraging everyone to trade in the runway for a three-hour event in the outer boroughs next season, Comey’s setup was a perfect example of telegraphing brand identity through staging. It was an individualist’s collection, with quirky femininity and a little unexpected sex appeal uniting the three sections. Comey made denim look fresh — no small feat — on a voluminous white strapless dress with a raw hem, worn with a pink acid-washed vest. She put a gypsy spin on colorful cotton in a crop top and ruffled skirt. For dessert: something sweeter, more delicate, like a slim black dress with lace accents.
