Fashion Week in Panama

We've had the honor of featuring designer Nixia Varela LaMar's work on our blog a couple of times before. We first introduced her to you back in October of 2010 with pieces from Costa Rica Fashion Week and then earlier this year with Macro Fest.

"For Fashion Week Panama 2011 Nixia Varela LaMar departed from her more formal, classic designs experimenting with apparel that hinted of the Bohemian. She mixed colors, floral patterns and prints accessorizing them with her own belts and bags. At this time she is shopping outside of Panama for her next collections." - The Designer's Husband, Philip Varela LaMar

I've come to love and appreciate the variety of colors, beautiful prints and feminine structure she uses in her work. These four looks were just a few of my favorites from the collection. I especially love the polka dots and the way she mixed opposite prints together. Which are your favorites?
