"Fashion Week newbies Bo Don and Yulia Lobova took the runway yesterday at Michael Angel’s Spring 2011 show, which showcased a series of watercolor-esque prints beneath sheer latex jackets and cropped oxford tops. The collection was a refreshing burst of lightweight fabrics and whimsical colors compared to Angel’s previous collections, which veered on the darker, heavier side." —Modelinia

"Michael Angel brought his minimalist vision of Italy to Fashion Week in New York. For his spring 2011 collection, Angel said he was inspired by a recent trip to Italy. "I was inspired by the texture. I was inspired by the colors. I was inspired by the religion," he said before his Friday show at Lincoln Center. On the runway, many looks were accented by sleeveless collared shirt peeking out at the neck. Some had bare stomachs. There were many wraparound skirts and dresses with asymmetrical hemlines. Some had high slits that revealed a lot of leg when walking." —CNBC
