Sometimes things are just meant to be. The designer behind Collina Strada talks about falling into fashion as she gets ready for NYFW.
Collina Strada makes the perfect bag to wear everywhere, anywhere, and any time. The line was launched in Los Angeles with handbags and accessories. Clothes were added just last year after they made the leap across the country to NYC. Founder and designer Hillary Taymour looks for inspiration where others don’t, which makes their styles fabulously off-the-wall. The designer has already gained a ton of fans: Style.com called her the next big thing, VH1 dubbed her a raising fashion star, and mega babe Blake Lively has be seen wearing her pieces. Better yet, sustainability is an important part of the business for Collina Strada: each piece is handmade in New York with eco-conscious materials. We caught up with Hillary to get the inside scoop as she prepped for her upcoming FW15 show at Milk Made Fashion Week in New York.
