Designer Amy Smilovic’s resourceful design and ability to anticipate market trends has made Tibi one of the most successful ready-to-wear lines, according to a recent story in Business of Fashion. We sent our New York style guru to attend the spring show this past weekend.
TIBI’S SPRING/SUMMER 2017 collection looked both timeless and modern, and best of all — functional. Several menswear-inspired looks paired wide-leg high waisted pants and shorts with dropped-shoulder, slightly oversized jackets. The dresses, in simple silhouettes and beautiful flowing silk fabric, with delicate accordion pleating in the sleeves and around the collar, were elegant and wearable, in black, white and a gorgeous shade of apricot. The collection also paid homage to the Edwardian era with corsets layered over dresses and oversized sleeves. In all, it was a show full of looks any city girl would love to wear.
