New York-based designer Amy Smilovic adds pizzazz to her relaxed silhouettes with lustrous materials, such as taffeta and sequins. Pleated dresses with sheer paneling, loose Bermuda shorts, and drawstring rompers make up the Tibi Spring 2016 ready-to-wear presentation at NYFW.

Designer: Amy Smilovic
Year Established: 1997
Spring 2016 Inspiration: Miami, Malibu, and Cuba.
Star Pieces: Burgundy adds depth to the spring collection while taffeta pieces in gradient color combinations of sapphire with cornflower blue and deep teal with light turquoise easily transition from day to night.
The Middle Eastern Sale: Breezy, midi-length trapeze dresses and fluid, slinky silk numbers are great to throw on and go. The billowy-sleeve, off-the-shoulder top is a closet must-have for summer.
Drawbacks: The baggy, long-sleeved jumpsuit with drawstring does not flatter.
