Spring/Summer Fashion Trends with Kmart's Kathy Huynh

Yesterday I attended a lovely blogger brunch in New York City hosted by Kmart Fashion to preview the latest trends for spring/summer 2011. I finally got to meet the beautiful Kathy Huynh, VP of Women's Apparel Design for Kmart, who I had the pleasure of interviewing back in 2009 (click here to read). Above, you can check out the short video I shot to hear Kathy talk about the hottest trends at Kmart and to see some of her favorite pieces. She's a natural on camera and she's wearing a gorgeous Attention for Kmart dress (in stores soon!) Special thanks to Kmart for hosting such a fun event!
