Inspired by her love of Lipizzan horses, designer Brandy Lunsford sent twenty-five racy cuts full of stark contrasts down the runway. There was not one conservative ensemble in this collection, that pushed the fashion envelope into the stratosphere of supremely provocative. Strap play was seen in v-straps and suspenders. Cut out dresses, ultra short shorts, and miniskirts defined a collection that indulged in knife pleats, silk flaps, slits, tiers, racer backs, and front flares. Leather accents played a large role throughout a show that stuck to a black, white, lime, khaki, and purple color palette. The line was extremely wearable and uniquely confident.
