Working an Ann Taylor show is enormously more relaxed and pleasant than any other show during Fashion Week. Probably because their offices are bright and airy, with huge windows overlooking Times Square, and their people are friendly – which all reflects in their clothing.
Their Summer 2013 collection is nautical (though isn’t Ann Taylor always?) with bright colors, stripes, and lots of floral. Though not exactly my taste, it does make me long for sunshine, and to be on a yacht off the Amalfi Coast, sipping a mojito.
