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.
