    Drumroll please...Tanya Taylor. Though she's a name you may be a bit less familiar with, take note. In just her second at-bat on the NYFW roster, Taylor has already garnered tons of buzz, and really, when your sophomore year show is at the MOMA, we're sure it's safe to say those flashing bulbs won't fade anytime soon. Luckily, for spring '13 she's certainly lived up to the hype. Pulling inspiration from Barbados resorts of the late '60s (who knew?), the Parson grad combines bold floral prints, rich black and coral tones, and relaxed silhouettes that vacationers of any era would want to sport, no matter their destination. To top it all off, Taylor's crafted versatile ankle strap heels and styled all looks with head wraps — providing immediately chic solutions for frizz-prone days.

    Click through our behind (and in front of!) the scenes snaps of Taylor's presentation and pick your favorite looks — we're kind of digging the two-piece floral bustier and trouser ensemble!
