Misha Nonoo had a fabulous season as she played with opacity, transparency, and both real and implied textures. The highlights of the collection were the sheer fabrics, cut-outs, and large interwoven panels and hemlines that added a unique point of interest to the designs. The collection also featured interwoven hemlines, which Nonoo paid special attention to the inner construction of, using a splicing technique so that no stitches could be seen on the outside. "I think about the inside of a garment as much as I do the outside," says Nonoo. Her attention to quality and detail has certainly paid off. This is one collection I would be proud to wear in it's entirety, except maybe the detachable fox collars which are not my style.

Designer Calla Haynes invented a story for this collection about a brokenhearted girl leaving Paris to move to Nashville, Tennessee. Calla pulled inspiration from her beloved Chow Chow, Lilybear, to create many of the graphic prints and also drew inspiration from the style of the renowned country musician, Porter Wagoner. The collection is fun, youthful, and full of gorgeous print, textures, and silhouettes. My favorite pieces are the grey Chow Chow sweatshirt and the plaid coat or croptop.
