Other designers, such as Chris Benz, Walter Baker, Rebecca Minkoff and Gretchen Jones, above, opted for more carefree, colorful, hippie-inspired clothes. Their collections used more patterns and layering. Baker, a veteran designer, and Jones, a "Project Runway" alum, did it best. Their collections flirted with flower power for more of a hippie-chic feel. Benz's signature trademark of layering and mixing patterns appeared too cluttered. Minkoff's collection was simply a sloppy disaster.
