Tanya Taylor was a bit of a breakout star last season, so all eyes were on the former designer's third collection on Wednesday. "I was inspired by an artist called Jean-Pierre Raynaud who was working in the late '60s and early '70s," she told Racked. "He was an architect who did a lot of grids and interior spaces. I love his work. He used to be a horticulturalist, so he would have pops of weird plant life and all these different, unexpected colors." Taylor used grids as her starting place for her collection as well. Mod silhouettes and textured fabrics on ladylike garments were the theme of the presentation, which was held in the foyer of the Museum of Modern Art. Check it out after the jump.
