With all the excitement of the Day 1 trunk shows and our local boutique runway shows, the buzz for the first-ever emerging designer runway for South Walton Fashion Week was electric. First to show her collection was hometown girl Cayce Collins. After buying a box full of 40s, 50s and 60s-era patterns from an estate sale years ago and taking them home to sew, Cayce has been hooked on classic silhouettes with clean lines. As a long-time Destin resident, Cayce has an understanding of what clothing fits the beach lifestyle but also lends itself to a sweet, timeless style. Inspired by classic designers like Nanette Lapore, Kate Spade and Marc Jacobs, Cayce’s pieces are clean, well-tailored, pure and pretty — perfect for warm weather in South Walton!
I’d love to design a piece that someone could wear for a decade and still feel confident. If it fits well, looks great on you and has timeless style, it’s always worth it.
In keeping with the classic style, Cayce kept the hair and makeup for models soft and feminine with long loose curls, rosy cheeks and pretty red lips. Presenting Cayce Collins at South Walton Fashion Week:
