Los Angeles, CA, March 15, 2012 --( The fashion world will get its first look at the Li Cari AW2012 collection on March 21, 2012.

International fashion designer Jazmin Whitley’s The Europe Collection will bring a splash of Europe to USA. “The Europe” is a women’s ready to wear collection comprised of organic cashmere, silks and woven fabrics in soft colors, blue, yellow, black and champagne. The range features the designer’s characteristic elements of classic timeless pieces through a soft and wearable palette.

This collection is season-less and pieces are staples for a wardrobe.”
