Michelle Smith’s spring presentation, which she dubbed “Wildflower,” was a beautiful ode to femininity in all its forms. “This is about us loving ourselves as women and owning our sexuality and taking that time to really know and love ourselves, and I express that through what I create,” said Smith at her new SoHo pop-up shop. The space was transformed into a beautiful floral extravaganza with a dome installation featuring the collection’s floaty floral silk gazaar numbers. “I wanted it to be an experience for the guest — and hopefully have them have an emotional reaction to it,” she added. Fashionwise, she played a lot with folds, cascading and pleating that expanded and contracted, which, she explained, were all elements that express femininity and womanhood.
