THE MINIMALIST COLLECTION: concept circa 2017

An evolving concept of what it means to live off of a stylish wardrobe where long-lasting quality is a priority, not an after thought. I believe the fashion industry should be designing better products with functionality and global sustainability in mind. We all have a responsibility to build a better business model that is effective for companies, consumers, AND our planet.

These are some of my working sketches of what a partially unisex multi-season, fashionable yet sustainably-made collection looks like.

Styles are designed starting with a base of effective natural materials such as merino wool, tencel, organic cotton, bamboo, and hemp.
