"Global artistic expression informs the modern exotic with re-imagined shape, color and texture," Rachel Roy

"She’s a dreamer, a thinker, a romantic. She sees opportunity in every escapade. Mastering in tales of the unexpected, she’ll have you spellbound in a heartbeat. Letters written in shades of porcelain, copper, garnet, cobalt and slate, she’s going for gold. Composed in fields of flowers and reams of lace, look carefully; the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Leaving a trail of shimmer, punctuating each encounter in charm and mystery, she’ll never be forgotten. Overseas, around mountains, among the birds, the scroll travels; never underestimate the power of a seasoned vocabulary. Always sealed with a kiss, it’s in your Letterbox!"  By Misha 

"Futurecooker" Mathieu Mirano

"I re-read The Great Gatsby and realized it really felt so Wildfox! Parties all the time, driving into town, spending money, falling in love, big mansions and gardens, the ocean, brewing your own alcohol, best friends and broken hearts...it's just so amazingly fun. It was all about sparkle and true love and dancing and champagne!" Kimberly Gordon for Wildfox

 "Girls who dress like boys," Nicole Miller

“I’m fascinated by mechanics, the bold geometry and graphic shapes created through flight. It is that raw power and beauty that is at the heart of my Fall 2013 collection," Monika Chiang

“The fall of the Romanov dynasty,Tadashi Shoji

“This season I was inspired by two great Russian works of art: Kandinsky’s balance of color and the ornate lines seen throughout Catherine Palace,” Son Jung Wan 

"FW13 at Degen is a total tribute to my geneticist parents. Expect germs, viruses, mucus and SLiMe!"   Lindsay Degen

"Saunder's Fall/Winter 2013 collection was inspired by 1970s rock'n'roll. I used a lot of rich colors and textures to reflect the depth of the music and found modern ways to reflect the feeling of the era,"  Emily Saunder

"For Fall 2013, I was inspired by the ornate interior of the winter palace in Saint Petersburg, Russia," Pamella Roland

"I want to go home,"  Rebecca Minkoff

"The collection reads the release is "inspired by New York with all its harshness and beauty. Reese combines a variety of rich textures and both feral and romantic patterns for a collection of sexy silhouettes with an emphasis on hourglass dresses, longer slim skirts, sweater tunics and bold, meaty jackets and coats.  Black in all of its magnificence, from deep velvety darkness to textured patent refraction, anchors a palette highlighted by scarlet, cerise, teal, aubergine, tan and lychee. With a strong dress presence in this season's collection, a classic and flattering Floral Frock in Scarlet is embellished with delicate beading and paired with a flat closed-toe bootie to create a timeless and modern, yet easy-to-wear look," Tracy Reese

"Youthful Energy,”  Sharob Wauchob for EDUN

"For AW13 I was looking at the structure and texture of beautiful aquatic flora and fauna, using it as a jumping off point for a color story and embroidery, Daniel Vosovic

“Fall 2013 is inspired by enchanted and fresh romanticism,” Whitney Pozgay, WHIT

“Fall 2013 collection is about elevated sportswear with utilitarian polish: powerfully chic but relaxed and easy,” Amy Smilovic, Tibi

“My Fall 2013 collection, with its architecturally fueled cocktail dresses, boldly textured tunics and color-saturated wovens are an abstract play on famed architect Ettore Sottsass’ signature totems,” Kelly Wearstler

"Natural defense mechanisms," Kimberly Ovitz

"Mystery of Istanbul," Max Azria, BCBGMAXAZRIA

Opulence in Nature” – Max Azria, Hérve Léger

"REVERIE," Ruffian 

“24 karat gold,” Rafael Cennamo

This season I am keeping it close to home and taking inspiration from my British heritage, touching on the 1960’s silhoutte and it’s graphic elements. Colors are deep and saturated and the feeling is a little tougher and more angular, Charlotte Ronson

"The winter froze you away," Katie Gallagher

“My 30th anniversary collection is a tribute to the great American fashion icons. Women such as Babe Paley, Gloria Guinness and Milicent Rogers embody the glamour, strength and elegance that has inspired me throughout my career.” --- Dennis Basso
