Summary: Sixties 'Mod' and current can fall into two different categories: costume or current. Thankfully, Joanna Mastroianni's Spring 2011 collection falls into the latter. Using bright and vibrant colors to create modern and architectural silhouettes with three-dimesional textures, Mastroianni takes the simplicity of those designs to translate into flirty chic.
The crowd at the top of Mastroianni's Manhattan atelier was excited for the presentation. As models posed inches away from the viewers, it was easy to see all the details that one might not be able to see on the runway.
