Christian Siriano

4 p.m. Saturday at Artbeam Studios


The Annapolis native was inspired by textile artist Sheila Hicks.

"I saw some of her work, and it was romantic. I started with that," Siriano said. "I then gave it a more masculine-feminine feel."

The collection has an androgynous feel, which is something Siriano said he hasn't done before.

Expect a lot of heather gray, silver, metallic, a "really, really bright" tomato red and a neon chartreuse.

Siriano said his favorite pieces from the collection are digital-printed knit dresses.

Stevie Boi

4:30 p.m.Saturday at Studio 450

"It goes back to Boy Scouts. And me being an adventurous child," the Baltimore-based designer said.

Expect plenty of earth tones, which is a first for Boi.

"I typically don't like that type of stuff," he said. "But I like a challenge. I've done all the bright stuff and the dark stuff."

The collection will include chiffon mixed with wool, silk and cotton.

"It's the most I've ever mixed fabrics," he said.

Also expect to see gowns and high-waist skirts. In addition, Boi created 900 pairs of sunglasses this season and will unveil lines of shoes and lines of leather luggage.

O'2nd's collection "City and Crafts" is inspired by the Victorian era.

The brand promises a "wearable" collection for "everyday lifestyle."

Expect handcrafted design details, brass buttons and military double-breasted silhouettes.

The slits, cutting and tying techniques of the garments will reflect the Victorian mood.

American artist Frank Stell's black-and-white artwork was additional inspiration for the collection. Red and cornflower blue will emphasize sophistication.

Brand director Minsoo Chung describes the collection as "a vintage mood meets a modern city."
