Designer of elegant cocktail and Red Carpet worthy evening gowns, Joanna Mastroianni staged an intimate showing at her atelier for her Spring 2011.

Her muse for this outing was the English potter Clarice Cliff, acclaimed for his cheerful patterns, vibrant colors and influential geographic shaped ceramics ---that are still selling well all over the world.

Mastroinni’s signature mixed media treatments really shined in this intricate, hand-embroidered coat with patent leather ---perfectly shaped in a swing coat that references the sixties---and captures the wit of the Mad Men style…

Our favorite looks are this bold sunshine yellow dress…

And this intricate hand beaded  work on this chic, flirty frock----impressive.

Elegant evening looks that we thought on trend and really stood out.
