Nymphs of the Forest promised to give pretty photo ops for New York Fashion Week coverage. At Ontavia Roulette’s Spring 2018 presentation there was a sense of the south–barefoot on the bayou, frogs croaking and moss hanging. The graceful silhouettes, with beading detail, highlighted an essence of raw-realness and sensuality. The clothes blended–presenting and opening up the face, the body of these beautiful models. Roulette’s “love of being a woman and the many ways women transform” was all there.
