Some interesting looks here
Nice selection of interesting designs. Something for everyone. Thanks for the link. :) Cathy
Thanks for sharing that link, Katina. Here's another one that you all might enjoy: http://www.dvf.com/dvf/?cid=bns09&gclid=CLLV1KKyxpsCFRlcagodKUS2BQ
Just clilck on your country, and then wait for the fashion show video. You can also click on all the other links to explore the different parts of the Website. If you want to study the dresses at your own pace, then just click on "collections" and you will see one photo at a time, rather than the video.

Thanks for this - a great site.
You are most welcome. While it is near impossible that I would wear any of these dresses "as they are", they gave me some good ideas on something to start with, too ...and go on from there. Either way, it's always fun to check out the new seasons fashions.
Yes, it's the ideas we glean from looking at others' work. I love handbag collections - the details used in the accents give me inspiration for tabs etc when making linen shirts, or jackets, for example.
I really appreciate the links. though, the one that Katina shared did not work . There's an error. Anyway, I like the mix and match @sewslow67 with the link you just shared. I loved the New Julian Short Sleeve Wrap Dress for a summer dress.
I like to wear summer dresses!
