spring summer 2017
The Spring Summer 2017 collection takes inspiration from our designer’s First Nation heritage, celebrating intricate appliqués, geometric sequins, pleathers and floral designs, the collection will follow a Native Mermaid lore and the connection between land and sea, hard and soft, human to earth.
This SS17 season, the inspiration is a Native American mermaid lore that told the story of a young native girl who spent so much time by the water that she eventually became a mermaid. The collection translated this beautiful story into my collection with fabrics and silhouettes that evoke the mermaid aesthetic. Showing men’s, women’s, and curvy designs on the runway this season with hopes to expand the diversity shown on Fashion Week runways. Much like the native mermaid’s transition from land to sea, breaking down the barriers in the fashion industry to become more size and gender fluid as a whole.
An Extended SS17 Collection was presented at Agence Select's Select Fashion Night on Oct 12th 2016.
