Antonio Berardi began his collection, with an array of Beautiful in lace and all shades of pink, and a little bit of red. Very Romantic and making me think of all things Valentine’s Day.

At the end of the collection, Berardi switches from the Romantic shades of Pink, to a more Fun and Dramatic monochrome shades, and leopard print ensembles. The fabrics of: lace, snakeskin, and sheer nylon were still in the collection, with a fun Baroque leopard printed fabric as a perfect fun and still Classy and Girly edition.

The end of Katrantzou’s collection was absolutely Stellar. Collaborating with Swarovski Jewels, Katrantzou sends out models in Beautiful floral printed, (Swarovski bedazzled), dresses. Each with their own fun flare, like ruffles, a fun full skirt, or in a Unique and Sexy strapless style.
