“MICHI represents enduring sophistication, alluring femininity, exceptional quality and impeccable fit. MICHI originated from the desire to fill the gap between provocative, glamorous lingerie and comfortable, utilitarian athletic wear.” Michelle Watson the designer behind MICHI has definitely filled that gap with her SS2012 collection. The MICHI runway show was one of the most entertaining and fun shows so far this season, the models really knew how to show off the clothes. After watching the show I even wanted to get into one of those pieces and do some sporty stuff. Good job ladies! Checkout the pictures from the runway here. Solmaz
