Bertha Angelo of La ‘Moo offered up a polished, CrazySexyCool, and fun collection at Hartford Fashion Week on Oct. 15.
Clearly influenced by the fashions of the ’90s with a mix of floral prints, flannels, denim, drop crotches, harem pants, and more, the collection showed that Hartford fashion is not some backwater of style.
Although there were ’90s influences, La ‘Moo managed to avoid the temptation of veering into costume construction. This wasn’t fashion that made a recent pit stop at “Straight Out of Compton.” Angelo kept the collection looking contemporary rather than throwback.
