Taking inspiration from her husband's (artist Javier Piñón) last body of work entitled O Babalon, New York based designer Mara Hoffman's Fall/Winter 2011 RTW collection featured juxtaposing elements of spiritual being and warrior goddess.

Make-up artist Lottie for Make Up For Ever created a mystical look with thick, kohl eyeliner around the eyes, accented brows, bronzed skin and neutral lips while Martin Anthony Harper for Cutler added tousled braids and turbans to complete the effect.

The collection featured long flowing gowns as well as chunky knits with bold colors, prints and dramatic styling.

Details such as tassles, braiding and embroidery accented the pieces.
