Designers Benjamin Channing Clyburn and Sonia Yoon burst onto the fashion scene in Spring 2007 after joining creative forces while studying at Parsons. Their Spring 2011 collection is cutting edge and fresh, featuring feminine silhouettes and colorful fabrics that make a statement whether you’re on the Upper West Side or down in the Bowery.
Eveningwear for spring is all about the textures! From silk and ombre to taffeta and chiffon, cutting edge is what it’s all about. Fur for spring? That’s right, perfectly placed cut-outs and ball gown silhouettes aren’t the only things drawing attention this year.
Gorgeous flowing fabrics and retro-inspiration drawing from both disco chic and pin-up girl couture are both girlie and glamorous. These styles take swimwear from the runway to the Riviera and back.
