Collage-making artist Anna Ostoya works were Rosetta Getty‘s inspiration behind her Pre-Fall 2019 Collection, and upon first look, it clearly shows. Perhaps the most eye-catching element was the color palette of the first section—bursts of tangerine and sunset orange painted stunning dresses and separates. They were made even more show-stopping with the confident mix of textiles, such as the first look of a fitted knitted sweater worn over a shimmering silk evening gown. This look alone personified how Ostoya’s artistry plays tricks with your mind, making you curious about the dimensions, proportions, and overall physicalities of her work. Here at Getty’s collection, however, instead of making your curious, you’re more or less seduced by the beautiful clothes. If not for the silky elements, but the vast array of techniques, from the soft tailoring to the visual patchworks, that encapsulates all that is artistic about clothesmaking. Aesthetics-wise, this was an uncomplicated collection, but the inspiration and the construction behind it make it more intellectual than it seems.
