The Show: Mara Hoffman Spring 2013 Collection
The Theme: Palm leaves and bright prints complimented on-trend shapes found in New York designer Mara Hoffman’s pieces this season. Island music opened the show with ukeleles serenading the crowd and taking the crowd to a retro and elegant Hawaii. Pops of color via red jersey dresses and swimsuits transported the show from the muggy sidewalks of New York City to the sunny and peaceful beach shore.
The Color/Palette: Inspired by nature, world travel, and fantasy in paradise, expect a collection that mixes coral, navy prints, magenta, and turquoise.
Best/Collection’s Signature Standout Look: While all 33 looks were fabulous and completely wearable, three gowns were the collection’s best: an Aloha stone cut out chiffon gown, a coral shields gown, and a turquoise shields gown.
