Let's get into my favorite designs from last Night. The looks that still have me floating on a cloud and day dreaming for warm weather again to don there designs. Here Goes...

I'm guessing her collection was displayed first as her pieces were truly at the top! Among the best of the night! I'm still in awe of the colors, prints, cuts and shapes. Each design had it's own essence all stand-out yet suitable to wear just about everywhere! There was one piece that stole my heart...


Crystal B Designs is synonymous with edgy, fierce fashions! Most of her pieces are custom made and she will design pieces that fit your desires. This Spring 2012 Collection features a vast array of white & black dresses that were paired with red pumps that just made each design POP! This one of many favorite pieces...

Shavonne Dorsey Spring 2012 Collection made me envious of the beautiful full-figured beauties modeling her designs.My absolute major favorite and a favorite of the night was this white tiered dress that moved so sweetly as the gorgeous model  pranced down the runway...


Cettina by Concetta Cipriano gave guest a luxe ethereal feel with her Spring 2012 Collection. Her pieces could be seen on the cover of a book or magazine and give the look an amazing ethereal vibe. This tangerine stunner stole the show...



Eric Kipp is such a dashing and debonair gentleman. It's no surprise that his collection mirrors his style.
 His suit jackets have such an understated yet take notice excitement to each of them...


Taneasha Prunty of GIDI really surprised me with this collection! Her past 2011 Collections featured designs that were sophisticated and glam. Yet this collection she turned up the sexiness in a few of her designs that had me "Giddy" with excitement....
