Entry Description: SS 2017 senior collection shown at New York Fashion Week and FashionArt Santa Cruz. I was inspired by the Fauvist oeuvre of Andrč Derain, first-hand experiences with climate change in my home state of Alaska, gay icon Peter Berlin and the idea of shamanistic streetwear. I made use of repurposed t-shirts throughout my collection, and employed eco-friendly processes wherever possible in designing my textiles. Denim fabrics were treated with hand-painted batik and discharge techniques to produce various animal motifs. 'Daubs' of color (scrap jersey and denim) were appliqued to various garments, expanding upon their depth and texture.
