A major trend for Spring Summer 2018 is Ruffles. Because they disrupt the line on which they lay, the presence of ruffles on a garment is there purely as adornment. And for that reason, a woman has to be truly confident to wear them. Ruffles stand out to add a dash of drama to any dress and is not for the faint of heart. I used ruffles in my collection to suggest the fluttering of butterfly wings and the unfurling of petals and they bring an unabashed sense of romance Colors are really important for the season. Often, designers are hesitant to delve deep into colors, especially in a city like New York where everyone seems determined to wear black. But I?m thrilled to see a more conspicuous presence of beautiful shades on the runways, including my own ? from sorbet shades to brighter tones of pink and yellow. http://nancytranstudio.com N ancy N T ran
