crafted collections. Matching the atmosphere, guests were
welcome to show off their own unique fashion, and most
chose to make a stunning, formal appearance. Although
they were showing off some of their own best looks, guests
were more focused on the empty runway soon to be filled
with graceful models working bold designs. The night did
not disappoint; it was opened by Antwan Byrd followed by
collections from Carissa Lynne, Janet Howard, and Dylanium
Knits, all delivering their own unique approach on the
Spring 2016 season.
“Not too much in specific, I draw inspiration from
anything vintage, really.” - Carissa Lynne Designs
Our favorite design, as you see in Sihan’s illustration, featured a cropped, pastel blue, oneshoulder top with gold embroidery. Paired with this design was a gold, all-over rose printed maxi skirt and heels. This beautiful design caught our eye as it transitions well to the upcoming Spring season, incorporating
color and revealing more skin. We can’t wait to see more from Carissa Lynne Designs and upcoming seasons of StyleWeek Northeast!
