by - Story: 59212

A new year begins, and we transition into spring/summer 2011 fashion collections. The old is cleared out, and the new starts arriving into the stores. Fashion is never an obvious change over, it evolves with each season, so within a couple of years, we are looking at something completely different to adorn ourselves with. It takes direction, and starts its journey. The runway directions this year are:
