New York Fashion Week Designers Make "Miami" Winter Clothes


There was lots of boho flair on the runway at Rachel Zoe, Nicole Miller and Mara Hoffman on days two and three of Fall 2012 New York Fashion Week. The look drew heavy from the late 60s and early 70s. Breezy flowy frocks in array of prints were met with winter essentials like floppy hats, velvet blazers and plenty of boots making these collections ideal for Miami’s climate.
