SNOW LILY

Autumn Winter 2014 Collection

The legend of the Snow Lily (Saussurea Involucrata) dates all the way back to 4000 BC. Ancient Tibetan tribes used this flower as a magical tool due to the healing power it possesses. The reason behind its name; the King of Herbs, is that this flower grows in the highest altitudes on Earth. It can be found between 10,000 and 13,000 feet above sea level in the Alps, Rocky, and Himalayan Mountains ranges. The Snow Lily struggles with ten months of winter and artic temperatures, but still manages to grow into an extraordinary flower.

 

The Snow Lily collection represents a sense of delicate flowers with tough exteriors. This translates into a collection infused with bold prints and

A-line silhouettes, while focusing on the influence of rich cultures in Europe, Asia and America. The bell shaped silhouettes are inspired by the domes of St. Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow, Russia. The square symmetric kaleidoscope prints are derived quilting techniques from Ohio, USA, and the vibrant pleated ruffle textile details are refined aspects of the Tibetan ethnic group.

 

Snow Lily encompasses aspects from three different continents to makeit a true worldly collection.
