Joy Cioci’s Spring 2012 collection was inspired by one of her travelling friends. In an interview with The Fashion Informer, Cioci revealed that she created a collection for “free-spirited women travelling in search of adventure and love.”

The collection gives a great variety of pieces for the modern woman. The most prevalent  styles include ruffled gowns, sheer/ruffled blouses, crochet detailing, and romantic dresses, in  very vibrant colors like chartreuse and red oranges, bold prints, and also subtle colors like pale blues and creams.

The mixed textures creates a very unique and distinct look. Who would have thought that combining crocheted lace, silk, ruflles, and chiffon would create such masterpieces. Joy Cioci did an excellent job ccreating soft and feminine looks with unconventional techniques.

These three looks would have to be my favorite out of the entire collection. I love bright and bold colors and the red-orange is exactly what I need. I love how all three dresses give the models an effortlessly chic look. These dresses are very versatile as well. They can be transitioned from day to night easily with the change of accessories.

Luca Luca’s Spring 2012 collection can simply be described as by Creative Director Raul Melgoza “sensuality.” The spring 2012 collection offers a variety of colors such as royal blue, magenta, lemon grass,  seafoam blue and the always classic black and white in relaxed silhouettes that still compliment a woman’s body.

Luca Luca offered separates as well as dresses and jumpsuits

Deep v-necks, cut out detailing and also mixed prints were stars of the show. The cut-out detailing showed just enough skin that would leave a woman feeling sexy, but also comfortable.

Along with the relaxed silhouettes Raul Melgoza also experimented with draping, which was done remarkably well. Many of the looks were accessorized with turbans and knotted scarves and peep toe ankle strap pumps.

Turbans have been on the fashion scene for quite a few seasons now and they will still update any look for the Spring.

If turbans aren’t your thing, then create this soft look of subtle waves

As with any season, always add a great lip color to give your a look a pop, but keep the rest of your look very natural
