“This collection has been inspired by fond memories of my stylish mother, my grandmother and their wardrobes.” States Fashion Designer Nina Skarra.“It incorporates the roaring twenties, symbolizing both my grandmother’s fun and rebellious youth, as well as St Tropez in the 1960’s, where my mother spent time as a model. The Spring/Summer 2013 collection brings together inspiration not only from their closets, but also from their personalities, sense of style, natural grace and desire for quality.”
