For Spring/Summer 2017 we added several new styles like a wrap top, scoop back tops, and a longer dress. There are new prints and new takes on old prints. We now have two new types of sustainable fabric--washed Tencel twill and washed Tencel indigo chambray. We hope you love it all as much as we do!!
PLA is featured in the September issue of NATIVE. This is our first magazine feature, and we got 9 pages!!! We are so very grateful.
Blogger Summer Liddington of asouthernsummer.com recently came by the studio to check out the current collection. Here are some shots she and photographer Kelsey Cherry took. Summer and I went to design school together at O'More College of Design so we had a great time reconnecting and catching up. Head to her blog to read an interview with me and see more photos.
Want to intern at PLA? We're looking for design students who are artists at heart. Who are eager to learn how to develop garments that are more than just a product to sell. We make garments that are thorough explorations of ideas. We experiment and get messy. We work hard and are extremely focused.
We teamed up with blogger Moriah Murrell and photographer Kelsey Cherry this season to create a lookbook for the spring collection. The photos were taken in the desert of Joshua Tree National Park and at Korakia Pensione, a lovely boutique hotel in Palm Springs, CA. The settings perfectly fit this season's vibe. The colors, textures, and jagged lines in our collection mirror the natural settings of the locations.
