With all the pomp and circumstance that Fashion Week can bring, it was quite refreshing that Tabitha Simmons kept her fall '13 presentation so beautifully simplistic. While the same may not always apply to her eye-catching shoes (pearl embellishments and iridescent fabrics are beautiful, yes—but simple, not so much), yesterday's debut at Milk Studios allowed us to truly appreciate each pair.
