Jennifer Nina Evans strives to find beauty in the most unlikely places, especially where society only sees an ugly duckling. Fresh from her debut at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City September 8, the SS 14 Collection Addiction shown at South Walton Fashion Week includes soft pastels in custom-made fabrics that seem to float down the runway juxtaposed with tough leather jackets, a slight nod to punk style and strong black and white. Jennifer’s inspiration was the journey of a socialite having a well put together life on the outside with little details shining through from a rebellious youth.
With a love for warm weather and an appreciation for layering, it’s no surprise jackets played a major role in her collection. “For me, making a fashion statement and creating wearability are equal goals. Eventually, I’d like to have a couture collection showcasing high-end avant garde technique with a Ready-To-Wear collection that complements it. For now, I design 1-2 couture pieces with others designs working around it.”
