Paris: An expert with chiffon and other delicate fabrics, Sharon Wauchob played to her strengths for spring. The designer toyed with the notion of undress, presenting plenty of pajama separates and sheer panels that allowed bras to peek through. There was a vaguely Asian sensibility present, with clean-lined jackets and wood-block florals. Wauchob added movement with fringe overlays made from self-fabric. The fringe provided an interesting element of distortion for the sweet watercolor florals. Moody navy tones added weight to the collection and contrasted with airy whitened hues and a vibrant orange. –Joanna Manganaro
