The Show: Norisol Ferrari
The Theme: “Think the curves of Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth and Rita Moreno. Strong, confident women who command attention, desire and respect.” Translation: red lips, statement hats, the accentuated waist, peplum, and figure flattering dresses.
The Color Palette: Classic, sophisticated neutrals- white, black, grey, nude
Best/Collection’s Signature Standout Look: Think “Mad Men”. Think brunch. Think of a strong woman in love. Whether that translates to the amazing black leather-like capris or the sexy corset bodices, and/or final array of gowns, what stood out the most was the sheer confidence in Norisol Ferrari’s models: old and young.
The Show: Joy Cioci
The Theme: Mermaid meets the 1920’s; vintage glam and fantasy make for a true beach party
The Color Palette: Crystal-like ocean blue, purple, pearl and white, and loads of embellishment/lace.
Best/Collection’s Signature Standout Look: Joy Cioci managed to make the beach feel highly romantic. Models looked mermaid-esque in lace crop tops, flirty blazers, and pencil/pleated skirts. Dresses moved with models dancing in the sand, and yet, leggings proved to be a must-have for SS13. Swimsuits and swim caps naturally held their own, but it was the unexpected shell embellished dresses and gowns that made bold, however graceful, waves.
