On the Radar -- Don't get it twisted...

Tia Cibani, Spring 2014

Braids were big on the spring runways -- but they've been making a comeback for a few years now.  Here's the difference -- we've now entered the phase of "How can I change this so it's REALLY different, but still a braid?"  And I love it; this is when the creativity really starts!  Here's a small sampling of how the braid is evolving:

And then it spreads into the rest of design.  Check these out:
