New York based designer Susan Woo presented her highly anticipated 3rd collection on during Fashion Week at The Bryant Park Hotel.

Good friends, socialite Olivia Palermo and Cinema Society’s Andrew Saffir celebrated the new and very wearable looks, which comprised of  organic materials as well as accompanied by vegetable tanned leather accessories.  Drawing from Medieval inspiration, the key 18 looks were shown in an earthy  palette consisting of dark green, brown, scarlet red, navy blue and blacks and whites.

The eco friendly designer selected natural fabrics such as alpaca wool, for a fur like texture, organic cotton jersey, and silk crepe for her “glamorous, sexy and female warriors”. Each layer serves a unique purpose: comfort, sensuality, practicality and protection.
