Joy Cioci Spring 2012 Fashion - MBFW NY - Photo by Luxury ExperienceDesigner Joy Cioci and Designer Mara Hoffman take a flirty, colorful, and contemporary approach to their Spring 2012 Collections as seen during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in New York.

 

For Spring and Summer 2012 Designer Joy Cioci takes a flirty and feminine approach with a contemporary edge for her 20-look collection. Launching her brand in New York in 2010 after working in many of the major design houses, Joy Cioci, is definitely a young designer to watch.

Red-hot describes her Silk Chiffon Red-Orange Cold Shoulder V-Neck Print Ruffle Dress, a sexy little skim-the-knee number with deep plunging neckline, and open three-quarter sleeves that hug the forearm.

She softens the look with her Silk Chiffon Red-Orange Motion Blur Print Deep V-Neck Ruffle Gown with spaghetti-straps, belted waist, and ruffled neckline; and her Silk Chiffon Multi-Blue Motion Blur Print Cascade Picot and Ruffle Gown.

Joy has no fear of bright colors, and her Leather Laser-Cut Chartreuse Saturated Dress is a standout. High neck, sleeveless, belted, with a peplum, the dress features sexy cut-outs in all the right places to add interest, yet has a level of modesty to it, making it a nice contrast.

Joy's "little suit" has an edgy, urban sophisticate appeal featuring a Swiss Dot White Blouse providing "peek-a-boo" interest, paired with a Crème Pencil Skirt with Peplum and Crème Day Double Breasted Jacket.

For Designer Mara Hoffman, "the personal style of Mexican women such as the famed artist Frida Kahlo served as inspiration for her Spring 2012 Collection, which she calls "Mexican Mamas." The combination is edgy and sexy.

Mara's color palette is vibrant with white, red, blue, orange, and black, with bold ethnicity, seed beading, embroidery, and custom prints designed in-house: "Veracruz" abstract tribal with pops of neon color, "Woodcut" white with woodcut design also offered in blue and brown, "Huipil" geometric dots with bright orange and purple colorways, "Ticker Stripe Embroidery", "Weave" black and white woven print, "Techno Animal" bright colorful tiny animals, and "Serape" striped knits, are a few of the distinctive features of the collection.

One of the highlights of the collection in white included a knock-out sexy Drapy White Blouse with a series of intricately woven straps on the back which she paired with "Serape" print Short Shorts.

Also interesting was her Long White Dress with interesting, eye-catching Roman numeral-like cutwork on the inverse triangular back and on the four layers of fabric, which comes off as an interesting combination of sexy yet demure.

Boldly colorful, her Skinny Pants with Matching Blouse in her "Huipil" print paired with custom made shoes in the matching print and Holst and Lee rope necklace was also nice.
