Amy Smilovic creates ensembles for a woman who wants to make a statement and her Spring/Summer 2009 collection for Tibi cemented her niche as a contemporary designer who is not afraid of bold moves. Smilovic made her impact on the fashion world by working with prints that command attention and for Spring/Summer 2009, she drew her inspiration from Asia and the US Eighties. These opposing themes came together to create a tour de force of color and texture that is uniquely Tibi and more importantly, never boring.

Brightly hued dresses in rich shades of jade and red were exquisitely draped in ultra feminine shapes that still exuded power. Exaggerated shoulders and bouffant sleeves showed Smilovic’s ability to create balance by juxtaposing strong tops with well-proportioned bottoms. The independent spirit of the line was reflected in harem pants, obi belted waists, mandarin collars, and balloon-inspired shirts.
