Sofada S/S '09

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Mon, Aug 18, 2008 at 1:43 PM

Joining the official schedule of fashion at large, Alice Dobson will be showing her spring/summer 2009 Sofada collection on Friday, September 12th on the rooftop of Jax (826 SW 2nd). A conservative designer, Dobson's collections tend to consist of simple silhouettes with gently fun touches, like polka dotted short shorts or an off the shoulder sweater, adding punch to a wardrobe of dresses your mother would approve of, and separates fit for the office. As local fashion design continues to gain confidence, it will be interesting to see how Dobson, a longtime designer in the community, reacts--she is one I would like to see become more experimental, if she can do so while remaining true to her overall aesthetic.
