You really have to see the garments moving to understand how nice the collection is, I think.

Angelo Marani - MIFW Spring/Summer 2011

Ok, now this collection is just fun. I loved the female rock star inspiration:

There are others I'd like to post, but I want to keep sewing, so I will have to post them later!
