We love having expectations for fashion, and then having them wildly surpassed. Dana-Maxx wowed us yet again with her Fall 2012 collection of womenswear, showcasing sexy skirts, fit and flair dresses, and her classic pops of color.
There’s something to be said about a designer who makes you feel at ease in her presence and in her clothing, and Dana-Maxx does just that. Her aesthetic is a combination of everlasting strength and femininity, with this season’s true inspiration being “desert architecture.”

This season’s neutrals are ink, black, mocha, and pumpkin with pops of gold sequins interspersed. Cobalt, ultra marine, and rhubarb will awaken your senses, especially when paired with the spicy Indonesian or alluring floral print. The sensual sweetheart neckline goes head to head with room-to-grow capes and boxy jackets. And yet, every piece can be mixed and matched according to one’s sartorial mood, albeit rumpled or refined.
