My line, Moxie, is inspired by all the girls I’ve spent the last 2 years with at apparel design school. I’ve never before tried so many new things and laughed so hard with all these sociable, funny, adventurous, and caring people. I wanted my line to embody femininity and fun in wearable styles for a real girl.
My clothes have an easy fit in soft, comfortable fabrics for casual every day of summer wear. I took design inspiration from Claire McCardell’s playclothes of the forties and fifties. Each piece to feels not obviously vintage-inspired, but has a touch of nostalgia that evokes an “endless summer” mood. I hope that when my customer sees my line, she can envision herself in Moxie roller skating around Greenlake, packing a picnic for the beach, or going to a summer party with her girlfriends.
