R.A.W. Lingerie’s display included a gorgeous model sitting in front of a vanity with curlers in, painting her nails with a bemused expression, while wearing an intricately stitched corset from hand rusted fabric.

Pinkham Millinery’s station was model-less, letting the high-end crafted hats speak for themselves. With throwbacks to a variety if styles and eras, each hat sat perched on a faceless headrest letting you imagine what kind of person it really belonged to.

Dawn Sharp’s display was simple, bold and pretty. Each model was swathed in her “Free Spring/Summer 11” multi-color prints mixed and mismatched in a way that was fashion forward and purposeful, while the girls carried picket signs with the collections name.

It’s no secret that Idom is a line I am particularly fond of. Designer Modi Soondarotak placed her exquisite, embellished frocks on dress forms with a neutral backdrop letting the contrast suck you in.

Laura Allcorn loves bees. That is one of the things I took away from her installation. A fantastically interesting combination of PSA about the importance of the honey bee to our crop production, plus a display of bee pollen encased in resin, it left me more thoughtful than an average presentation.

Adam Andreas and I were having a lovely chat about his installation revolving around the theme of all things Geo (Geology, Geography, Geometry) when he was swooped away by Mayor Sam Adams who was admiring his menswear collection. I suppose that sums up the fact he was well received.

Sword + Fern had a funky display with two lovely models decked out in spandex body suits lounging under a mosquito netting. The ladies were adorned with interesting chunky jewelry made from a bevy of objects ranging from crystals to metal cut-outs that were extremely wearable.

Though I don’t like to start conflict, Filly may have been the crowd favorite. Designer Emily Christenson was off to a good start by having the anti-Robert Palmer display (Google that for those of you under 28) with a crowd of lovely girls with sleek hair and neutral make up, dressed in simple chic beige dresses. But then to top it off she had the worlds’ sweetest dog lie in the center of the display and not a single person could resist the level of cuteness happening there.
