“Whenever I design, I picture this girl by herself picking out this dress. And she wears it and feels something really special. I’ve always said my clothes are my way of romancing a woman.”

Who’s do you see wearing this collection?

“Anyone, anyone. Any shape or size.  Anyone who loves clothes, who loves to feel good, and who loves the idea of love. It’s so affordable that anyone can wear it.”
Ne-Yo
What are you excited to wear this spring?
“Clothes, because walking around naked is illegal. No, I’m kidding. You know, I’m not really the ‘trend follower’ guy, or the ‘trend-setter’ guy. So I haven’t figured out what I’m going to do for spring just yet.”
This collection is based on love. But lets talk about what the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done on a date is?
“I’ve forgotten a girl’s name. I’m not proud of it! You asked.”
Analeigh Tipton
What are you most excited to wear this spring?
“Shorts. I love shorts and boots — it’s so easy.”
This collection is based on love and romance. Can you tell us about a date gone awry?
“There are many. My first kiss was at Disneyland, and I didn’t know what a French kiss was. So when he leaned over and gave me a kiss, I pulled away and wiped my mouth and said, ‘Yuck!’ and started crying.”
Isabelle Fuhrman
What are you excited to wear this spring?
“More dresses. I’ve never really worn dresses, and recently I’ve gotten more into wearing casual dresses.”
So that’s a fashion risk for you?
“Yes, and I want them very mod. I’m obsessed with the ’60s and Twiggy.”
This collection is based on love. What’s the most romantic thing you’ve done recently?
“Snuggled with my dogs! I mean, I’m 15! “
