"I look at all of the brilliant things that have been done in the past and I bring them to the present," said Tfank, describing her design ethos. "It's not retro, it's intelligent." As a strategy, it's proven quite effective. First Lady Michelle Obama chose a cobalt blue Tfank creation for the State of the Union ceremony in January and the designer has worked with Adele since she was 18 years old, years before she picked up her pile of Grammys. This season's nod to the younger ladies came in the form of playful dresses decorated in Schiaparelli butterflies and silver daisies. We bet the Fanning sisters would be down to wear either one.
