Designer Spotlight: Antonio Marras

Antonio Marras’ Autumn ’13 RTW collection mixed rich colors with bold floral, folkloric inspired designs. As Tim Blanks from Style.com commented, the designer evoked a “poetic instinct for the romance and drama of fashion,” with the collections early twentieth century influence. Blanks also commends Marras for “playing with print, collaging fabrics and textures, mixing genders,” and acting as, ” a poet, painter, and philosopher,” while designing his Autumn 2013 collection.

I completely agree. The collection is absolutely stunning, with innovative plays with textures, colors and silhouettes. I look forward to seeing more from this talented designer!
