Powell showed his Spring/Summer 2012 collection "Twisted Daisies" at the Emerge! fashion showcase at the Broad Street Ballroom in the city's financial district. Powell's says over the course of three days last summer he kept seeing the color yellow, and it inspired him to create this collection. Additional photos courtesy Emma Arnold, TresAwesome.com.
