Mon Petit Oiseau: Alright kids, it’s time to pack up the station wagon, turn up the tunes and head off for a seaside vacation, maybe in Nantucket. And make sure to pack a bag of Mon Petit Oiseau pieces. Designer Tracy Wilkinson has long been known for her charming, flirty, easy-to-wear collections. For spring, she captured the carefree feeling of a fun summer holiday, complete with souvenir-style buttons pinned onto little shorts printed with “Je t’aime.” And she kept the printed whimsy flowing with chubby chickadees, exaggerated paisleys and graphic cherry blossoms. And she wasn’t afraid to mix those patterns together and, when trimmed with a ruffle or ribbon, the effect was lovely. It was almost sad to see the the bright show end, but here’s to the promise of spring, fun holidays and that charming little chickadee minisheath.
Heike Jarick: Watching one samurai movie after another might affect a girl’s point of view. That’s what happened when, depressed after a fire destroyed her New York apartment, Heike Jarick spent weekends in her new Lower East Side pad with nothing but her TV. She didn’t pay attention to the swords and fight scenes, but rather found inspiration blending images of Japan with the vibrance of her new colorful neighborhood. In her collection, it translated into cheerful color — lacquer red, koi orange and sunshine yellows. She mixed the kimono with the bolero and came up with a trim-cropped jacket, while whispery layers of gauzy chiffon were cut into handkerchief-hemmed skirts. Jarick exercised a light touch with the gathered pleat or smattered bead details, giving the collection a sense of tranquil optimism.
Rebecca Rich: Travel by way of the runway is one of the great pleasures of fashion. The Mexican Riviera was the stop of choice for Rich who injected flounces of citrus green or hibiscus pink embroidery onto classic, sometimes proper, sundresses, A-line skirts and tailored blouses. A simple sheath in magenta jersey was given a drapey cowl neck that plunged down to the navel while a tailored blouse was gathered slightly at the bust to soften the shape.?Bright ruffles peeked out from skirts while her final look gave in to all-out flair with a flamenco style gown in lavender and lime. Overall, it was the right amount of sweetness and spice.

“People should be a lot more honest in expressing both the dark and light of themselves. We need to give each other the space to do that because it’s the only way we can grow and evolve,” says @noelwells of her new film “Mr. Roosevelt,” which is largely based on her own struggles. Unexpectedly leaving @nbcsnl in 2014 after just one season, Wells felt set back in her self-esteem and career trajectory.
