Fashion Week in NYC is not limited to the effervescence of Lincoln Center, and on Sunday the 13th I headed to the salon of The Michaelangelo Hotel to discover Romás by Linda Rowe Thomas latest creations.

The collection was showed over two hours in a low-key yet lovely showing to present eleven looks featuring sparkles and golden tones in red carpet styles as well as neutral shades for simply cute everyday wear.

The event was presented by Godiva chocolates as the designer’s love for the delicious sweets inspired the rich hues such as golden, vanilla or boysenberry and of course, the always chic black and white.

As a kid Linda was caught in a fire that took one of her hand and left her with a scared face but her strong personality did not let the accident bring down her willingness to create wearable designs midway between ready-to-wear and couture collections.
