Laurel DeWitt took over the Church of the Holy Apostles in Chelsea to debut her SS18 "Dancing Queen" line. Gone were the pews full of faithful Christians praying to their bibles, as the space was transformed into Studio 54, with inflatable silver chained balloons set against gold and silver thrones.  
 It was the seduction of romanticism and courtship that grabbed our attention as a violinist walked down the runway in head-to-toe metal playing a classical version of Beyonce's Pray You Catch Me. As the soft vocals of Beyonce's voice began to come through the sound system, you could hear the clash of the metal, as if it was a part of the beat. This is how you open a show, and Laurel DeWitt ensured she had our full attention as she presented her SS17 collection. Staying true to her aesthetic, the 18 piece collection was custom designed in metal, but not like we've seen before. DeWitt continues to incorporate new materials into her collection; last season we saw denim and leather, and this season denim was remixed with more distressing and slicker laminate inserts and latex bodysuits. Laurel never ceases to amaze me with her innovation and attention to detail.
Shimmering silhouettes, metal bodysuits, chained turbans, and metal bell bottoms rocked the runway to ABBA. And it was fabulous!
