The colors of fall 2011 silk and jersey collection are inspired by “earth, wind, fire, water and void”. One of my favorites from the collection is the Shoreline Dress, which can be worn in many different ways. I’m also loving the Tea Gown, which will make a beautiful bridemaid’s dress, or evening gown, with its sexy open slit on the back.
