Pratt Institute fashion graduate Camerin Stoldt will present her 2016 thesis collection during New York Fashion Week at RALPH PUCCI in Manhattan. Her 10-piece collection will be displayed on mannequins creating a still-life runway in the RALPH PUCCI Penthouse gallery.
Stoldt’s collection, which was presented at Pratt’s 2016 runway show in May, caught the eye of Ralph Pucci, Pratt Institute Trustee and head of RALPH PUCCI.
“The moment Stoldt’s collection hit the runway, I knew she was the one to represent Pratt for the annual PUCCI/Pratt exhibition. Her clothes are colorful, modern, and simple—very exciting and refreshing,” said Pucci.
The collection imposes silhouettes on the body through color blocking and incorporates unexpected materials such as leather, corduroy, and ribbed knits. Her exploration of different techniques such as bonding and athletic finishes results in an interesting story influenced by Stoldt’s attraction to contrasting mediums, forms, fabric, and color.
