My name is Annie Holmes, I’m 25 and from South Minneapolis. I grew up here with my mom, dad and brother. I have been slowly finishing my AA, as well as the apparel advanced certificate, while waiting tables part time for the past few years. Like many girls I was drawn to fashion at a young age. What began as playing dress up in my mom’s clothes evolved into altering and redesigning thrift store finds. What I love about fashion is that it is a meeting of function and beauty. Clothing that fulfills your practical needs can also fulfill your deeper need for fantasy, and self-expression. It gives you the opportunity to show yourself, and the world who you are, and who you want to be.
My vision as a designer is to create functional, comfortable clothing with creative distinction. This line aims to achieve that with styles and silhouettes that are classic, paired with details and embellishments that are interesting and modern. The blend of masculine and feminine separates, allow the women who wear them to express their strength, beauty, and unique point of view.
