Spring 2013 is here to celebrate the global traveler in all of us, where everything goes and it is up to us to explore all that the world has to offer all of our senses. From spicy and savory tastes, to pungent and sweet floral scents, to the soft touch of buttery leather, to the intricately blinding bursts of color from exotic and familiar places- be prepared for a yummy sensory overload! Take the opportunity to explore your inner child as you throw your crayola box in the air and pick what ever colors that fall in your hands first to paint the masterpiece that is you. Be bold in African prints, be demure in pastels, be a lady in fancy lace, be a rock star in leather, be wild in abstract and animal prints, but most of all be the you that you have always wanted to show the world!
From Black and white fusions to global prints, to shades of denim, to exploring both the feminine and masculine, to pastel and bold colors- everything goes and is on trend. I call it the season of the global fusionists- exploring prints, florals and colors that span the globe in creativity, where your choice of dress can take you from the vibrant streets of Africa’s cities to the seas of coastal resorts of mediterranean, to the yacht clubs of the Hamptons. Your wardrobe for Spring 2013 should be fully loaded for your local “staycation” or your global explorations. Spring Back into step to the True You! 2013: ReClaiming your better more fulfilled self in fashion and life as a true Product of Global Fusion!
