The second Arlenis Sosa stepped on the runway wearing a beautiful white dress with a floral print at the Tibi Spring 2010 show with Guns and Roses “Sweet Child Of Mine” blaring in the background, I knew I was going to love this collection – and I did.
Designer Amy Smilovic always give us something fresh, eye-catching, and youthful.
Her inspiration for spring was ‘Great Expectations’, set in the early ’90s and starring Supermodels.
I didn’t quite get the supermodel reference until I saw the show notes with each piece given a supermodels name, for example the Evangelista mini skirt.
We were presented with minis dresses, silk tops, bubble skirts, shorts, cropped pants and maxi dresses in both floral prints and brand’s signature hummingbird print.
There was a gasp in my area when the final pink gown with spaghetti straps and rosette details on the bodice came down the runway. It’s was so pretty and looks silky and velvety soft.
Tibi’s spring collection was simple and wearable, but elegant and incredibly pretty. The bold colours and bright prints added to the dimensions of the clean silhouettes, suitable for all women. Cute without being sickly sweet.
I loved that the models smiled through-out this presentation. Something I didn’t see much of during fashion week, and I loved the coral eye shadow.
The front row included Olivia Palermo and more reality TV show housewives.
