NYnorLA, Spring 2018 Capsule Collection

A small collection of clothing made from remnants, printed with a low-impact photographic transfer technique or dyed by hand.

The name NYnorLA intends to start a conversation about the ongoing perceived density of American art and design movements in these two coastal cities. The majority of materials used in these pieces are secondhand in an effort to acknowledge the importance of extending the life of landfill-bound objects. Most of the pieces in this collection are 'one-offs' and won't be reproduced

This collection was launched in the spring of 2018 at 802 N. Nevada St. in Colorado Springs, CO. It was shown at the Colorado College Fashion Show and photographed with Alyssa Denay Carter (https://www.alyssadenaycarter.com/), Brittany Camacho and Tess Murdoch (http://tessmurdoch.com/). Another photoshoot took place at Joshua Tree with Sabrina Piersol and Emma Kearney.
