Americana Collage by Anna Sui

By: Ashleigh K. Copeland

Highly influenced by the 1960s, Anna Sui brings a femininity and cinematic-esq. take to the runway.  Each look references an aspect from the Old West, classic Americana, and fashion trends throughout the 20th century.

Bandanas, fringe, pussy bow ties, and leather jackets; platform sneakers and sandals, paired with lace gowns of sheer fabrics and appliques; bouffant hairstyles atop models with either heavily contoured makeup, or models with natural-looking makeup pull each look together.
