|"Keep my eyes on the seam...Keep my eyes on the seam..."|
BPR: Tell us about the inspiration for your collection.
AV: I always have to come up with a funny name for my collection. Last year I did "French Medieval Fly Girl." This collection I call "Machu Picchu Punk." Those are two of my biggest inspirations. I am always inspired by some international culture..usually an ancient culture...usually a place I have never visited. So I have this "wide-eyed naive midwestern girl kind of looking out into the world" attitude. I am also inspired by street style. I love the attitude of punkers or hippies. I love anything that is a little bit against the grain.
BPR: Which is your favorite piece in the collection?
AV: I love the all-black fringe piece toward the end of the collection. Actually Mat helped my style my looks... He gave me some great feedback. I am obsessed with the fringed skirt... It was really fun to make - just a blast. I should have shown it off a little more - it is high-waisted. I just love it.
