UTILITARIAN SENSIBILITY 
New York: Karen Walker’s Fall 2014 presentation – inspired by the Suffrage movement – features elements of the period through frilled collars, full skirts, and soft tailoring. Utility details visible in the pocket flaps and layered turtlenecks gave the collection a bit of an early ’70s edge. – Deirdre Pérez
