"Spring 2013 is about renewal and regrowth—I was inspired by how the sea can be transformed and violent during harsh weather and emerge changed and even more striking when the storm is over." – Ann Yee
“For this season’s collection I looked to a glamorous evening in the 60’s in Deauville, France” - Dennis Basso
“My spring collection has a "cabinet of curiosities" and kaleidoscopic theme, which incorporates many different colors, finishes and patterns into an eclectic grouping that somehow cohesively works.” – Kelly Wearstler
“I was inspired by the thought-provoking, ritualistic undertone and nomadic nature of Kazakhstani performance artist Almagul Menlibayeva's work.” – Kimberly Ovitz
“While designing my Spring 2013 collection, I was inspired by sci-fi 80s movies. The color spectrums are otherworldly, and the tactile, emotive surfaces in the films inspired me to experiment with proportions, colors, and fabrics, both natural and synthetic.” – Nicole Miller
“Neo Bauhaus a retro-futurist mood between modernity and emotion, a design where the circle is developed to nano-perfection for a chic ergonomy focusing on innovation.” – Thomas Steinbruck, Creative Director
"The inspiration for the Spring Summer 2013 Collection is the relationship between man and nature. The juxtaposition of massive man-made concrete structures against the depth and fluidity of the sea epitomizes the electricity and contrast between these opposing forces." – Sally Lapointe
"For Spring it's about shape, structure, and defining the waist, all in an eased out fashion" - Amy Smilovic, Founder
“There was a mystical vision for spring inspired by the traditional tarot. A beautiful hand-drawn swan print, delicate knits and embroideries embellished with Swarovski Elements underscore the collection’s darkly ethereal tone.” – Wes Gordon
"The worlds I discovered in books as a child." – David Peck
