Fashion Design, Associate Provost and Dean of Faculty
And now this…
Before an artist or designer puts pencil to paper, they must have an inspiration. I’m often inspired by a detail, a color or a silhouette. For this mini capsule collection, I was inspired by the fabric. The texture and the weight and how seemingly fabric and patterns that wouldn’t ordinarily come to together are intentionally paired. Heavy upholstery is mixed with the drapiest of lightweight denim, which was bleached and tied into knots. Each look is a combination of two looks, which can be worn without their companion coats, jackets, dress and skirt.
