Living in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Northern Carolina has given me inspiration my entire life. I wanted to pull color inspiration from the mountains as well as capture the free spirited and healthy nature of the people. This collection utilized natural blue and tan hues with a touch of sunset orange throughout the activewear pieces.
The Blue Ridge Mountains are blue because of the isoprene release into the atmosphere by Rhododendron and other trees in the area.
To balance the deeply saturated colors of the collection I incorporated natural tones of white, off white, gray and black.
I incorporated deep sunset oranges into the activewear collection to give a punch of color while acting as a safeguard reflective textile.
