For Spring '12, Alberta Ferretti delivered her signature ultra-feminine aesthetic with a modern twist as models strutted down the runway in sheer cutouts, African-inspired prints, crochet, and beading cut into slinky slip dresses and skirts. "To me, a simple shape and easy way is feminine and modern," said Ferretti. For daywear, the designer offered up a bevy of geometric cutout dresses — made to replicate Zulu markings — effortless knee-length skirts, and vibrant patterned dresses. However, it was evening offerings that took our breath away. Alberta's sheer black gowns were exquisitely embroidered with intricate beading and crochet details lending the perfect bohemian luxe vibe. Read below for more details from the collection.
