It takes a master designer like Christian Lacroix to confidently mix a dizzying array of prints and make it work. Indeed, there was not a single solid piece in Christian Lacroix's strongly decorated collection, but there were plenty of flowers, colorful patchwork, polka dots, paisleys, beading, Kabuki motifs, petal embroidery and giant leaf prints. It was a visually arresting extravaganza that captured the soft, feminine side of spring 2000. If you're in the market for a garden party dress or an eye-catching number for those long summer nights, look no further.
