A Small Collection would fit right in at a MOMA as part of an avant garde art installation, but these eleven short videos actually showcase Austin-based designer Alyson Fox’s eco fashion line. Inspired by vintage clothing, Alyson decided to emulate that look using only sustainable fabrics like organic cotton, hemp and linen, and organic elastics and buttons made from fallen tree branches.
No zippers allowed.
Already an established illustrator and photographer, Alyson adds to her skill set designer and stylist to great affect. Her collection of wrap dresses, sweaters, skirts, shorts, tees are funky, functional and extremely feminine. From the videos to the artwork, fashion to photography — not to mention modeling — A Small Collection is celebration of one woman’s sartorial ingenuity.
