Carolina Herrera makes waves at New York Fashion Week

Designer Carolina Herrera took her love for water and turned it into a collection of 46 pieces at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York on Monday (February 16).

"The collection is based on anything that has to do with water. Like the rain, ocean waves, the lake, the rivers," said Herrera.

"I used tweeds, I used wools, I used organza. But the important thing in this collection are the sizes you're going to see in the materials. Because they are all connected with the water idea the colors are like grays and blues and very soft and suddenly some red," the designer explained.

Photo prints with waves and multi-dimensional fabrics were also used to created liquid a like surface on garments.

Each dress created has a different movement, with Herrera explaining that they bounce similar to waves.

Although the line featured looks with heavy structure, the designer made sure each piece had the ability to move.

The Venezuelan-born designer ended the collection with her signature show-stopping gowns which were described as "calm elegance."
