"This year’s runway shows were closer to demonstrating inclusivity and diversity than ever before. Heck, one designer, Havilah (above), completely aced it.

"Havilah’s pieces really are that heavenly! Think: delicious pastel shades in pink, blue, and green paired with bold make-up in similar tones, billowy sleeves, and ruffles. The rufflier, the better!
