FULL INSIGHT AFTER THE JUMP!!!



PROMINENT COLORS
Deep Lagoon, Spritely Seafoam, Bright Calypso, Fresh Ivory, Pale Lemonade and Endless Midnight.

SIGNATURE COLORS
Deep Lagoon — its vibrancy, energy and depth perfectly represent water’s changing state.

MUST HAVE ITEM
My Ocean stripe tee and short set — a tranquil, picturesque, oceanscape, digital print turned into a stripe repeat and printed on a classic tee silhouette and athletic shorts; the look feels weightless and the sheer panels on the tee add to the transparent element of water; the digital print comes in a multitude of Blues, the main one being True Blue.




PROMINENT COLORS
A new balance pairing aquarelle pastels with vibrant pops of color — the contrast of Amethyst with Soft Shell, Bloom with Hibiscus, and Flax Linen with Candy Pink creates the emotion of unbalanced beauty.

SIGNATURE COLOR
A variety of hues that play a huge role in creating my unexpected, enchanted, dreamlike world, such as Limeade, Lagoon and Juniper.

MUST HAVE ITEM
A Limeade, peplum, cap sleeve cropped jacket — I always design to build confidence and celebrate the strong woman; the Limeade color paired with peplum makes this jacket a statement piece; you can pair it with different silhouettes, whether it is an asymmetrical silk chiffon dress or palazzo pants.





PROMINENT COLORS
A wide range of Greens, with Mentholescence being most prominent — the range of color goes from the Sour Greens of Pistachio and Midori to the Cool Blue-Greens of Cool Mint and Beachglass

SIGNATURE COLORS
Mentholescence, and White would be a close second — the freshness of these colors paired together is really extraordinary

MUST HAVE ITEM
The key word for spring is "easy" — easy pieces that fall away from the body with a totally relaxed feeling really encompass the mood of the season





PROMINENT COLORS
Pale Iris, Desert Bloom, Paprika and China Blue


SIGNATURE COLORS
Paprika expresses the vibrancy of the Modern Silk Road, while Pale Iris exemplifies its soft tones

MUST HAVE ITEM
An Ikat-printed, gazar, strapless, pleated gown in Pale Iris









 PROMINENT COLORS
A foundation of Black, White and Gray using highlights such as Bright Yellow and Blush — the stark contrast of these colors creates an unusual, yet clean, palette that is perfect for the modern look of the season.
SIGNATURE COLORS
                                                      Blush because it creates a quiet counterpoint to the more graph nature of the Black/White/Gray combinations.

MUST HAVE ITEMFor an important evening event, the sleek, fluid gown in Blush silk crepe with matching glass Maco beadwork would be a fantastic way to look and stand out.




PROMINENT COLORS
Ivory and Black with primary colors such at Poppy and Cobalt as an accent.

PROMINENT COLORS
Bright, bright and more brights: Warm Orange, Sunny Yellow and Lipstick — they look fresh and alive; bright colors are the new neutrals!

SIGNATURE COLORS
Warm Orange — it is bright, but still has a softness to it; it is an Orange that looks good on most skin tones.

MUST HAVE ITEM
My Warm Orange re-embroidered lace gown — laces in brights look new and fresh; it is an exciting manner to add color to your wardrobe in a new, unexpected way.
