Be on the lookout for unique shapes, vibrant hues, and new twists on classic staples. Remember to trust your instincts and not be afraid to be original. Diana Vreeland said: “Style – all who have it share one thing: originality.”

Who are your ACC show artist picks? 
The contrasting lines and weaving of this bag by Pong Gaddi (bottom right) are intricate and innovative. The various forms of weaving increase detail and make it a versatile and wardrobe-friendly piece. This regal necklace by Sharon Rosenthal (center bottom) is a show stopper. The combination of natural elements with metallic highlights gives a touch of nature-inspired beauty to the look.This edgy, reworked design of a classic denim vest by Sandra Nieto (left) is trend-setting. You’ll be noticed for your fabulous fashion and sleek style. I love this intricately textured gold cuff by Barbara Heinrich (top right), complete with its ruffled edges and jeweled accents. This perfect piece completes any little black dress ensemble. These bold embellished earrings by Susan Mahlstedt are a dramatic addition to any monochromatic outfit. This caplet by Rachel Sherman (middle right) can go from office to after hours with ease and style. The solid silver construction by Paz Sintes (middle top right) gives the abstract and ornate design a solid sense of style. Gold construction combined with deep vibrant hues of blue and green create a radiant shine that can be seen from every angle. These earrings by Jonathan Rutledge (middle top left) make the perfect statement piece.
