You might recall seeing Fililí Jewelry on the runway during Auralis Studio's Spring 2011 presentation at The GreenShows last September. Heads were swiveling and the models looked so hot with these whimsical accessories that beautifully complimented the clothing's sexy and vibrant palette.
Designer Luiny Rivera Gelpí's sculpturally bold combination of fabrics and artful wire bending put a modern street spin on Calder's whimsical mobiles and sculpture as well as possibilities for recycling on the runway.
