Street-wear collection

This is a three-part collection that revolves around my personal issues and ideas of what a young, female snowboarder needs and wants. The three collections cover outerwear, street-wear, and accessories.

“Snowed Out:” The outerwear collection came from the need for more mature, stylish snowboarding clothes. The styling was inspired the design details from art deco.

“No Snow in the Summertime:” The street-wear collection deals with designing updated, modern sportswear that appeals to the athletic, yet trendy female during the snow-less summer months.

“Music for the Slopes:” The accessories board deals with creating accessories that make listening to music while snowboarding easier and more comfortable for the rider.

it's that simple ...

I believe that fashion should be fun, creative, and above all else, comfortable. Whether it be casual, everyday clothes or a special one time evening gown, it should feel good. If the person wearing it is not comfortable, it defeats the purpose. And if it feels good, you'll look good. It's that simple.

... and i love it!
