The summer collection includes flowy skirts, tank tops, backless dresses, undergarments, cut-out tops and bralettes. As a designer, Dena, wants to inspire women to feel confident and secure about their beauty regardless of their age or body type. The woman who wears Dena Venable is daring, full of joie de vivre and free-spirited. It’s a woman who likes to be herself, knows who she is and enjoys her surroundings. Cotton and chiffon are the primary choices of fabrics, which are in alignment with the cool vibe of the line.
Dena’s collection feels feminine, earthy, flirty, laid-back and effortlessly chic. The palette it’s composed of earthy neutrals, neons and soft shades. Black, tan, white and creme are staples; however, color wise, what stands out the most is the combination between bright and soothing colors that go intertwined in the tie-dyes. The inspiration behind Venable’s brand is bohemian-chic meets Miami-sexy, and it’s shown in her use of fringe, low necklines and high/low hems.
The showstoppers are the tie-dye color combos and the balanced mixing of soft fabrics. A bull-horn stamped cotton top mixed with a bright chiffon maxi-skirt that is ideal for a stroll on the beach or a pool BBQ, a backless dress with a cut-out bralette underneath which it’s the go-to Miami club style, and a hand-made fringe handbag perfect for a picnic, road trip or artsy night out.
