After a few tough seasons, it seems as if fashion yearns for a storybook ending. The industry's reaction to the economy last spring was like a scene from Alice in Blunderland - a child's defiant experiment gone awry. Last season, a sober Cinderella never made it to her ball. At last, this season seems like the final chapter of the fairytale, and as the trend would indicate, TIBI wanted to end her story on an upbeat note.
Against a picturesque, woodland background, Amy Smilovic succeeded in making us Happily Ever After. Feminine silhouettes in shades of mint, poppy, and daffodil, created a charmingly wearable collection in silk chiffons and lightweight linens. Fortunately TIBI, while always a crowd pleaser, is never as predictable as our childhood storybooks.
And in today's fickle climate, that characteristic is as valuable as spinning gold.
