  Ruffles and floral prints about employed for the designer’s fall collection.  I also enjoyed the use of denim and knit neutral tones for several of the looks.

It was all about the winter feel for this collection.  Quilted coats, knitted sweaters, over sized puffer jackets, and vests help communicate this particular season’s vibe throughout the show.

This was one of our favorite collections particularly for the use of lips and Pop Art element. The designer’s signature prints and use of fluorescent color really allowed this collection to a memorable one.

Science meets Fashion for this collection particularly the periodic table.  Now Chemistry wasn’t a favorite class of mine, but I will make an exception.  It was nicely carried out.

The designer continues to look towards her home country of Russia for inspiration when it came to the theme for this collection.  This time around she chose to focus on the royal traditions.

Here, you have another collection that decided to play up the royal theme with the own unique twist. Of course, the standout accessories to me would have to be the hats. I am a big fan and wearer of hats.
