Modern romance is epitomized in Julia Kalmanovich‘s spring collection. The Russian designer, who grew up in Moscow, is inspired by her mother’s classical style as well as her love of the ballet and traditional theater.

I spent the better part of yesterday drooling over Haleigh’s, of Making Magique, photographs from her recent family trip to Peru.
