"Inspired by the rich color and pattern of Marrakesh, spring is all about shakin' it in the souk. Rich shades of rosy coral, desert orange, and palm green are cooled off with hamman white, icy silver and navy, creating an exotic, adventurous, endlessly chic collection with an underbeat of funk, Elisa Miller for Calypso St. Barth

"For Spring/Summer 2013, Monika explored the modern vibrancy of South Africa. Her travels throughout the region inspired a vision of luxe athleticism that reflects the glamour of Cape Town, as well as the natural beauty and the powerful athleticism of the region," Monika Chiang

"Inspired by the rich range of hues found in David Hockney landscapes, the color palette focuses on foliage-inspired greens, complemented by cool blues, lilacs, tangerines, and neutrals. I played with the juxtaposition of organic and technical, soft and structured, and sporty and feminine for an unexpected and refreshing collection. A quilted silk jacket in pert layered over a black burnout gauze shirt and a mentholescence stretch linen trouser, and paired with fringed sandal and clutch, creates an effortless look that is sophisticated yet relaxed, Tracy Reese

American Optimism,” Tommy Hilfiger

“Fearless,” BCBG

The Ballerina,”  Christian Siriano

"My inspiration for Spring is centered around geology and biology, garnering much of my creativity from numerous trips to the Museum of Natural History,Mathieu Mirano

"For Spring 2013, the pamella poland collection is inspired by the iconic American artist Ellsworth Kelly. His stark black and white paintings are part of a body of work that resonate in particular because of their clean - almost severe - lines that speak to a harmony between the shapes that they create." -- Pamella DeVos, designer of pamella roland

“Layers that Bond the Eye,” Herve Leger

The Spring 2013 collection is inspired by my fascination of how our current natural landscape will adapt to new technologies. The collection has some 80s sci-fi undertones, updated for the modern girl, Nicole Miller 

“This season I was inspired by punk rock and Bloomsbury group artists, thinkers and writers; Virginia Woolf ,  E.M. Foster  and Vanessa Bell,”  Johnson Hartig for Libertine

>“For this season’s collection I looked to a glamorous evening in the 60’s in Deauville, France” - Dennis Basso

[Erin Fetherston] found inspiration in a photograph of Brigitte Bardot perched in a wicker chair, clad in canary yellow ostrich feathers. Fetherston captures the sultry spirit of the French icon in a collection that explores femininity with an edge, in the spirit of understated glamour."

“Modern Silk Road,” Tadashi Shoji 

“Unexpected dreamland, eclectically whimsical,” Rachel Roy

"My spring collection has a "cabinet of curiosities" and kaleidoscopic theme, which incorporates many different colors, finishes and patterns into an eclectic grouping that somehow cohesively works," Kelly Wearstler

"This season was inspired by Michelle Ochs’ origins in the Philippines – drawing upon the country’s sharp architectural shapes and casual draped beachwear,"  Cushnie et Ochs

“Rhapsody under the sun,” -- Son Jung Wan 

Think the curves of Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth and Rita Moreno... all strong confident women who command attention, desire and respect."  Norisol Ferrari


"The sites and sounds of New Dehli (the architecture, garb, festivals, food, vibrant color) and the religion and energy of New York City," Sheena Trivedi 

"I was inspired by the sea and all of the colors that lie beneath it…the movement of fish, the reflection of the light and the various coral,"  Joy Cioci

"Black layered top with leather and suede and a pencil skirt in leather with suede panels," Creative Director, Thomas Steinbruck for Porsche Design
