Spring/Summer 2015 "Traveling Light" Collection
"Traveling Light" has a bit of a dual meaning to me. It's a concept in which I have been working through in releasing things from my past, not letting any negativity of hardship define me and an overall cultivating of a sense of lightness. From a design perspective I took this quite literally in the airy fabrics that I used: bubble gauze cotton, lightweight jerseys and mesh, elements of sheer, playful trims. I had also been traveling a lot to warmer climates while designing this season and I wanted to think about things that I could easily throw in a suitcase for a beach vacation that was versatile enough to wear for a summer in the city. It's a very west coast inspired design concept in that it's laid back, edgy, playful. I wanted to express a bit of youthful exuberance while maintaining a ease of sophistication.
