Another favorite look is the white plunging neckline dress with a cascading high-low hemline.

From sequins to beads and studs to jewels the collection as a whole kept you wondering what piece would walk down the runway next. Although there was a variety of embellishment and age in models the collection as a whole was cohesive. Each piece helped tie into the next. The collection featured bathingsuits, two piece cutouts, unexpected panels. Some designs even came as "mommy-and-me" sets. My favorite look was the pink mermaid dress with floral trimming on the bottom.

joined forced to create a fantastic runway show. Race & Grant creates edgy jewelry pieces and accessories that paired perfectly well with Julie's bold apparel collection. Chain-mail accessories worn as individual garments. Military colors and silhouettes, chains and red eyebrowns, made this colleciton memorable. My favorite look of the night was the grey cut out panted jumpsuit/romper with combat/doc martin boots. I even helped out in the backroom creating the tucked in peg leg look. A reoccuring trend in the collection was the upsidedown tulip skirt and pants. Both Julie and Race Grant showed together at last year’s Boston Fashion Week.
