Botanical Resort

this post all started with a dress. well, actually… it all started when i was ploughing through hundreds of photos of the Resort 2016 collections. but that’s not such a great intro, is it? truth be told i’m kind of lost when it comes to “the shows”. i might see one frequently…

Resort 2015

i was looking through the Resort 2015 shows, preparing to do a bit of a round up of my favourite designers, when i noticed a lot of themes jumping out at me. so here they are. if someone asks you what you thought of Resort 2015, you can just respond…
