Tibi designer Amy
Smilovic put forth a Fall 2008 Collection that was
brimming with paisley, prints, and iconic graphics.
The clothing felt like an extension of the spring
line, and it was lovely to watch a designer build
on last season’s line. There was a real sense
of cohesion in the collection that felt retro, yet
modern. The funky sensibility was feminine, but
still managed to feel tough. The subversiveness
in the line worked to create a British feel that
was wrapped up in a downtown vibe.
The formal wear transitioned from
neutrals to bright hues with a standout gold gown
that had show-goers literally gasping. This RTW
collection was well executed, and it spoke to the
rocker chick who has a sophisticated edge.
