Badgley Mishcka for spring 2012 showed bright hues, such as yellow, citron, green, pink, and burnt orange, in jacquard, brocade, chiffon, and organza. A stunning turquoise brocade cocktail dress with intricate purple detailing came down the runway followed by a fuchsia number with beautiful structure and tailoring, including a peplum, which adds layers in the front for a fun, feminine look. Bright colors and silver belts make this classic look have an edgy feel, as well as, a turquoise leather jacket over a bright turquoise swimsuit adds a little rock n’ roll into the collection. Mark Badgley and James Mischka truly have an eye when designing their collections, as cinched waists, sweetheart necklines, and layered ruffles are flattering on every woman.
