In the recent interview I did with Wilhelmina Model, Bridget McGarry, we learn the inside scoop on the Bloomingdales hosted charity event, Force 4 Fashion. At this event several top designers including: Cynthia Rowley, Diane von Furstenberg, Giles Deacon, Halston, Opening Ceremony, Ovadia & Sons, Parker, Rag & Bone, Timo Weiland, and Todd Snyder all showcased their talents to create a piece that was inspired by the latest Star Wars film,The Force Awakens.
Here are some of our favorite pieces from the event and we will be sharing Bridget’s Red Carpet look from this event that is both chic, unique, AND affordable!
Star Wars Inspired looks:
PARKER JUMPSUIT INSPIRED BY CAPTAIN PHASMA
“We imagined what Captain Phasma would wear out of her Stormtrooper uniform. We wanted to glam her up but still keep her looking fierce. Our design was inspired by ancient tribal warriors.” – Parker Team
DIANE VON FÜRSTENBERG
“This look is really a celebration of strength and beauty which is perfect for Rey(The Force Awakens protagonist).It is also lightweight and easy, because movement is so important.” – Diane von Fürstenberg
“Complexity inspires me, and darkness, by nature, is always multifaceted. I wanted to show the intertwining of power and emotion – we know Kylo Ren won’t just be a one-note villain. The dress evokes strength, but also lays bare her vulnerability with sheer panels across her shoulders and back. The headpiece, like a mask, draws you in, but keeps identity elusive. (Halston began his career as a milliner, so I loved tapping into that part of our DNA). Overall the look brings out a powerful presence in the wearer, creating an instant shift in everyones position around her.” – Marie Mazelis, Halston
“We chose Finn because we wanted to explore his adventurous character. We love the idea of combining functionality with fantasy and creating something for Finn that could easily translate to everyday wear.” – Timo Weiland
Bridget McGarry’s look for this event is a chic, all black look that can be worn at several occasions. Find this whole outfit below and don’t forget to be on the look out for her whole interview on iaam.com!
