New York: Amy Smilovic of Tibi focused on handcrafted artisan techniques inspired by the Japanese and Peruvians to give the collection unique details based on tradition while still articulating modern dressing. Intricate quilting, ties, fringe, and folds added texture to otherwise basic items. Natural colours such as white, stone gray, and aquatic blues were inspired by Koi fish and its pond, further tying in the influences of nature and serenity. –Jaclyn Jones
