The following 4 designers showed their newest designs for spring/summer 2013. Take a look through the photos and let us know which pieces are your favorites!
Benito Antonio, Dominican Republic: Designed a line of women’s party attire. Decadent dresses with intricate details including extravagant hair accessories. The line consisted mostly of gun-metal greys, black, white, with pops of red—in addition to the sequins and shine on the designs.
Ivan Blasser, Panama: This menswear line reminded me of a day at the beach or strolling the boardwalk. Very airy and comfortable looking pieces with simplistic details.
Nicole Houston: Lacey details, giant bows, ruffles, exposed zippers, bold pouf sleeves, cut-outs, and strong shoulders make-up Houston’s ultra-feminine line. In addition to the show-stopping dresses, light blazers, trench coats and tailored shorts appeared in a pastel pink, lavender, khaki, mint and gold color palette.
Krystalos Jewelry & DLe Swimwear: Intricate bib necklaces, chokers with some serious bling, multi-layered necklaces with bold charms, sashes and bright jeweled belts took the runway by storm on-top of the fabulous white swimsuits by DLe Swimwear.
