Dallas designer Abi Ferrin is aiming for national expansion after showing her spring-summer ready-to-wear collection during New York Fashion Week.
The 50-piece collection included camisoles, tunics, halter tops, cowl-neck dresses and strapless long tops that can be fashioned into a short dress. Many of the styles were cut from silk charmeuse, silk chiffon, rayon, Spandex and Modal jersey, with a palette of mostly jewel tones such as fuchsia, red, green and blue, with prints including Sixties’ optic and Asian abstracts. Wholesale prices for spring range from $45 for a top to $120 for a dress.
