Osman in particular did an all white spring summer 2010 collection with touches of gold on some designs. What he lacked in colour he certainly made up for in architectural designs and shapes. Who said white is boring?

Other designers like Ralph Lauren may not have started their collection with a white ensemble but certainly interweaved them in their collection.

I don't really love any of the white dresses you have here, but I do really like the trend. Banana Republic has several dresses to choose from that are more my style. I do love the floral necklace though. It's beautiful!
