Patience may be a virtue but when it comes to spying Derek Lam's new dress collection for eBay, waiting just isn't an option.

Thankfully we don't need to. FashionEtc has received a sneak preview of one of the exclusive designs from the Derek Lam + eBay line: a multicolor floral-print georgette maxi dress.

Lam will unveil the rest of his 16-piece collection—billed as "iconic dress styles he envisions for every woman's wardrobe" and ranging from shirtdresses to formal black-tie gowns—on February 16 during a Fashion Week presentation and online at

And though we hate to play favorites, eBay shoppers are being invited to view the collection (starting 10:45 a.m. E.T. on February 16) and vote for the best dress. The top five will be produced for the final crowd-sourced collection, which will be available for purchase in May for $125 to $295.

Just try to not let all that power go to your head, OK?
