A wall of inspiration in Yoana's office

Throughout the studio there was an immense level of beauty and inspiration.  From the garments, to the mood boards and team members I saw a unique blend of artistry and workmanship.

On my last visit to NYC, I had the privilege of visiting the studio of Yoana Baraschi, one of my favorite designers.  I was first introduced to her line a couple of years ago at Miss Jackson's and have been smitten ever since.  Each season, her collections are comprised of beautiful fabrics and silhouettes, architectural pieces, interesting patterns and dresses ready to attend a party.  This season the concept behind Yoana's collection is Illuminated Web which she describes as an energetic grid of light which is the blue print of each design that comes to life.  Her Spring 2014 collection is every girls fantasy full of sherbet colored frocks, unexpected print mixes and architectural pieces in black and white.  This is a collection that will suit the classic minded to the trend setters!
