I was lucky to get to attend the Vivienne Tam fashion show in the theater at Lincoln Center on Saturday. Natalie and I went last year (post here) and we loved her flowy chiffon butterfly dresses. Vivienne has a beautiful aesthetic: feminine and fun. Watch the video above for highlights of the runway show and behind the scenes footage.
The Spring/Summer 2011 collection was titled Silk Road and certainly had Asian influences (fabrics, cuts, lace and batik patterns - a theme that still runs strong for spring).
There were many flowy patterned dresses, apron shorts and skirts and adorable shorts with bows. Vivienne Tam continues her boho chic style with shots of color and plenty of patterns.

Crochet lace and cutout designs get modern.
Denim also gets thrown into the pattern mix.
Sexy, flowy dresses seem to be a signature of Vivienne Tam's. I love the details in each of these dresses.
This raspberry batik dress is one of my favorites. I could totally see myself wearing it to brunch on a Sunday with sandals or dressing it up with heels for drinks out on a warm summer night. Then for a perfect Saturday lounging around, I'd wear the stylish tunic and short set (at right) which looks so perfect for summer.
Finally, it isn't a fashion show if you aren't checking out who's in the front row. I spotted Serena Williams, Denise Richards and Kendra Wilkinson (who all created a fierce paparazzi furor).
