This collection balances the importance of utility, leisure and adornment and the balance of each element within the wearable garment. Taking cues from style icons like Monica, Lance Bass and Ja Rule, the Resort 2016 collection combines traditional textile processes; rug making, dyeing, knotting and quilting with trends and cuts indicative of early 2000’s popular culture.
The collection first showcased in the Crystal Room at the Hotel Phillips, featured a live performance by Apollo Lason and Blakfish.
Models: Markeisha Yancey, Samantha Zamora, Elex Franklin, Jacquiline Jarboe, Vincent Sung, Stephanie Clark, Shelby Smith, Logan Nichols, & Lamisha Mckamey.
