Green Tea: Rescue
Commissioned by Jahna Peloquin of Le Petit Connaisseur dela Mode, each designer made a look inspired by a Vitamin water flavor. My flavor was Green Tea: Rescue. With a desire to tie this look to my fall collection, I explored the idea of a Chinese cowgirl. A heroine that has escaped the harsh working conditions of the transcontinental railroad and has taken to the trail. A rebel and a loner, always a distant and stunning figure at the edge of town. She holds on to the fabrics and aura of her origin, yet accepts the need for tough and practical garb.
Cotton mandarin blouse, blanket wool mini-vest with leather and fur applique, silk trousers with leather detail, leather quiver/bandoleer.
Check out Jahna's recap of the entire show here.
