                                              For Fall 2012, Veda designer Lyndsey Butler married her contrasting lifestyles as a Texan and Brazillian hybrid transplanted to New York, into a rendition of her multicultural, southwestern meets urbane sophisticate roots. As explained in the run-of-show, a mix of inspiration led up to this collection including “texture, David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust, and Persian Rugs.” While all were surely apparent, Veda clearly references rock and roll with her signature leathers, pentagram earrings and flashy glitter-woven fabrics, all of which matched the all-girl rock band playing on the other side of this grafitti-clad, industrial space.  Contrasted by the feminine lace, blush tones and natural makeup, an androgynous juxtaposition created an interesting collection that departed from the boho vibe of Spring 2012.

                                              Posing on vintage patterned furniture, such as a leopard chaise and patterned chairs that sat on top of Navajo inspired woven rugs, the models in Veda’s presentation each held a disposable camera that created an interactive space with the audience, reflective of the blurred lines Butler's ethnic upbringing inevitably inspired her to create.
