The focus may have been on the Oscars this week, but that wasn't the only awards show in town. At the always unconventional Film Independent Spirit Awards, fashions ranged from sophisticated to playful with a surprising mix of Pre-Fall 2012 and Spring 2012 selections. Color was back in full force, especially in the form of florals and more abstract prints.
