Video Loving: Cynthia Rowley Filmed Inside The Met Gala

Disclaimer first – if you get motion sickness this is probably not the video for you, but if you have always wanted to know what goes on inside the Met Gala then you need to check out this footage shot by designer Cynthia Rowley with a hidden camera in her clutch.

OK, so a lot of its at bum level, it is a fish-eye view and sometimes you do feel queasy watching it – but come on just look at the motion of all those gorgeous gowns, especially that dark pink one with the feathered skirt and I think I love Dita Von Teese’s dress even more.

NYFW SS11: Cynthia Rowley Goes Crazy With A Hole Punch


Cynthia Rowley opened her spring/summer 2011 collection with a simply-yet-sexy light grey shift dress with circular cut-out detailing to the bust and falling just below the knee.

Setting the vibe before the show started with sixites music it was not surprising then to the 1960s silhouette throughout with sleek shifts, polka dots, laser cut detailing, sheer panels, geometric shapes, striped knits, cabochon features on the skirts, slim trousers and candy colours.

One of my favourite pieces had to be this white satin dress with shiny bauble cabochons embellishments in pastel shades teamed with slicked back hair and bright red lippy – super cute.

This collection also saw the continuation of the socks and heels look, with most outfits going down the runway with floral and geometric patterned sandals with ankle wraps and sheer socks. What I can say about this line from Cynthia is that it is one of the most wearable collections I have seen this New York Fashion Week, I loved the 60s influence and I surprisingly love the hole-punch detailing.

I think I have found a replacement for my Barbie plasters with these chic limited-edition Band-Aids designed by American designer Cynthia Rowley.

There are 14 designs, in various sizes of course to use dependant on the size of your cut, including lace, sequins, gems, gold chains and even a complete runway show, showing her quirky style.

Sadly these cuties are only available in America *another reason added to my ever-growing list to move there*, you can purchase at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in NYC, at Cynthia Rowley stores or by clicking here.

What is surprising is that they are only $10 and one dollar from the sale of each tin will benefit Design Ignites Change, an organization that engages high school and college students in multidisciplinary design and architecture projects that address pressing social issues in their own communities.
