This collection was inspired by my multi cultural background; both my Colombian and American cultures inspired it. That's why I choose the colors yellow, blue and red and white because they are the colors in both my flags. When designing it I was thinking of what my girl would want to wear on vacation but that she could also wear out and about at home. Some garments are geared towards everyday wear and some are pieces more adequate for special occasions. The striped and plaid fabrics are organic hemp. The blood orange fabric is dead stock fabric and the yellow fabrics are hemp and organic cotton hand dyed with turmeric. I wanted to explore a more feminine aesthetic with this collection for my last full collection Eleven was very masculine. *This collection was debuted at Helsinki Fashion Week and has been featured on Vogue Italia, Vogue Arabia and Elle Ukraine; to see the features check out the blog.*
