Designer Diary: Rachel Antonoff

Someone once said girls just wanna have fun. Well, Rachel Antonoff's playful, vintage-inspired aesthetic proves this definitely applies to her. So it was no surprise that she brought her eclectic sense of fun to her spring 2011 show, which was a slumber party-themed presentation. The models lounged, roasted marshmallows, and napped in a stylish townhouse. Check out these snazzy pics from Rachel's installment of Designer Diaries!
