In case you missed it, here are five collections that got our attention (spoiler alert: there will be hummingbirds).1. JAC by Jacqueline Conoir is Vancouver-based designer RozeMerrie Cuevas’ new line, which reflects her personal style: chic, contemporary, sensual and detail-oriented, according to Cuevas.
