DAY 2 MBFW
For Spring 2012, Joy Cioci was
inspired by her vision of a
free-spirited woman traveling in
seek of adventure and love. Joy
sought to create a versatile
collection with effortlessly luxe
pieces that embrace this woman's
zest for every sphere of life. Soft
details on structured fabrics create
a juxtaposition of delicate strength,
while maintaining a whimsically
romantic feel. This collection was
saturated in vivid colors.
DAY 3 MBFW
Farah Angsana looks to the
enchanting beauty of the Orient for
inspiration in her Spring 2012
collection. The bursting colors of
Japan's famous cherry blossoms;
the time-honored traditions that
continue today; subtle currents of
grace and elegance that have
never fade away. Taking cues from
a painting she saw in a Shanghai
art gallery, Angsana pairs
inspirations from the East with the
modernity of the West.
DAY 4 MBFW
Custo Barcelona presents a
Tripolar collection with innovating
3D prints. In this SS 2012
collection garments are divided
into three groups, each with its
own identity and theme -
DUAL,
KALEIDOSCOPIO
and MÍRAME.
We loved the looks from MÍRAME,
which featured  long and short
dresses, shorts, tops and
swimwear, made of silk and linen
combined with nylon and acetate
to achieve 3-D effects.
