|FRANKIE B. : Wednesday, 29 October 2003|
Holding the record for a legendary 3 rise and signature stretch denims, Daniella Clarke designs for an archetypal Pilates body with a rocker-chic social life. No wonder starlets like Lisa Rinna and pop-singer Anastacia took notes from the front row. After a seemingly endless drum roll the show began, and once again the hippy chick designer did not disappoint. Sheer peasant tops paired well with dark rinse cross-weave jeans; caftans accompanied heavily whiskered railroad denims and handkerchief hems defined most dresses. A standout vintage pink motocross jacket interpreted seasonal trends beautifully, and was viewed enthusiastically by Nordstrom buyers in the audience.
Showing deft treatment of the current color-block phenomenon, Daniella offered up a punchy series of baby-whale stretch cord separates with contrast piped insets and eye-catching polkadot linings.
Her West Coast sales team already indicates strong
|response to this collection.
Metallic platform clogs and slouchy knitting bags accented the lineup along with
her licensed tee shirts. With a well-rounded presentation like this, could
Frankie B. remain far behind the recent buyout craze sweeping California?
