There was a solid focus on this season's trendy colors; prime pink, bold tur- quoise, poppy pastels, a satin mint along with a classic zebra and metallic leopard print. The collection also offered some VIP pool party attire. There was a cutesy deep blue tennis outfit, pic- nic pattern cover-ups and even a bedazzled dress or two. The show was a hit as always with top stylist Jana Rago on site from Salon Acote on Newbury Street, but well known for her work with Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York as well Paris.
