Awaveawake designer and stylist Jaclyn Hodes is known for the stunning, feminine silhouettes she creates, and with her Spring/Summer 2014 presentation at New York Fashion Week, she has drawn upon the glorious colors and textures of Thailand as inspiration. The pieces she created certainly evoke the wonders of Thai spice markets: body-skimming gowns and separates in hues like orchid, saffron, peach, and lemongrass, juxtaposed against cool grays that hint at stone shrines and monsoons. Each item has a story to tell, and those who love the idea that fashion can be imbued with tales of spirit walks through incense-filled temples would undoubtedly enjoy revelling in this collection.
