Summary: For Spring 2011, Vivienne Tam took us on a trip down the Silk Road where the devastating floods spanned from China across India to Persia. The look was somewhat casual Boho which was a huge deviation from season's past where her looks were much more tailored. Picture unstructured patchwork jackets, loose eyelet and lace dresses and  casual shorts. The look was very relaxed and very wearable. 

Color Palette: ivory, sand, quartz pink, garnet, lapis, indigo, midnight blue,

Fabrics & Textures: cotton lace, ribbon lace, net lace, cotton eyelet, silk chiffon, silk, cheongsam, patchwork, flower applique, crochet knit, macrame beading, arabesque embroidery,

Key Looks: ivory cotton lace Yatak jacket; silk chiffon Chaman garden top with a sand draped sarong; lapis arabesque embroidery dress; damascus jasmine print chiffon Miao wrap gown; Boho style nasir Mosque print nomad blouse with a lapis tiered shirt; Vatika garden net lace strapless dress.
