BFW: Can you elaborate on this collection and why you chose leopard prints and your color schemes for the collection? and what was your inspiration behind collection?
TJ: The Collection is called “Fierce Feline” I chose leopard because it is a very versatile print. Leopards are both strong and gentle creatures which also can describe most women.
“In my Wisconsin design studio I have 2 large windows and as I was creating this line in the winter, I noticed the sky was cloudy for days. I was just wanted the sun to come out for a moment. Then it hit me to add bright yellow fabric to the collection. The yellow color definitely brought and energy and vibrancy to the collection. Also It pairs beautifully with the leopard print.
BFW: What was your inspiration behind collection?
TJ: “My inspiration comes from the bold print of Leopard!! Some women run from it because of its boldness. So I purposely designed garments out of this print for all shapes and sizes. Dresses with in polyester, mesh, tulle combine in this leopard print. I wanted a fierce strong collection with a nice soft balance with the color yellow. I think I achieved that with this collection.”
