Houghton Bridal Fall 2017

Katharine Polk wanted to turn her fall bridal show into a more personal project following an article she wrote for Harper’s Bazaar about her nine-year struggle with anorexia. “[The article] got a lot of attention from friends…. I knew I wanted to do something different this season,” Polk said. “So I reached out to nine of my best friends and asked if they would do some soul-searching and join me.” The result was “The Houghton Girl,” a short documentary-style film about female empowerment that was directed by Garen Barsegian. Through a series of candid interviews, Polk’s best girl friends — a mix of designers, personal trainers, musicians, models and creatives, all of whom sat front row during the screening — opened up about their own issues regarding body image, societal pressures, depression and self-identity in the digital age.
