Fiona Cibani has been going down the architectural road for a few seasons now and the results continue to be mixed. At Ports 1961 beautiful linear dresses and wrap vests and jackets tie with a neon cord were nice touches. Knit color blocked dresses were quite chic. And some suits were just the perfect looks for Spring 2012. There were some sheaths with intricate draping and pattern plays. There were some odd fabric choices (crinkle viscose and puffy plissé) and knit pants that were fashioned in rouching which is not a friend to any woman over 105 pounds.
Michelle Smith put forth a show with geometric prints, zigzag patterns, electric colors, color blocking in beautiful linear shapes and looks. This entire line is done in a very clever way that there were no mistakes in any color or print combination at all. Artist Sonia Delaunay is the inspiration for this designer's vision for Spring /Summer 2012 and there will be no resisting a design from Milly by Michelle Smith.
