Omaha Fashion Week's next season is just around the corner, and we're thrilled to share more about our amazing lineup of designers!
Margeaux Larson traces fashion through the decades by adding a modern feel to traditional pieces. Inspired by the ethereal jellyfish, her new collection invokes movement and translucency.
How did you get into fashion? Share a little about your background.
I have been sewing for as long as I can remember. I started creating in preschool with lots of glue and popsicle sticks. After I graduate, I plan on attending Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) to become a fashion designer.
What are your personal goals, or goals for your brand?
My current goal is to continue my education in the fashion industry and see where that takes me. I will be attending college in the Fall. I have been accepted to SCAD where I will study fashion design with a minor in costume design.
Describe your favorite project(s) that you have worked on.
Currently I am working on a design for a college scholarship, which has been a fun project. I am creating a dress with red velvet and clear vinyl. It has a gradation of vinyl flowers hand-sewn on the skirt and top.
Describe the collection you are creating.
I created a ready wear collection inspired by the last century. I have ten pieces, one from each decade starting with 1910. I have taken each decade and modernized the look, but kept the aesthetic.
What sort of design elements can we expect from you this season? What materials, colors, shapes, or patterns will you be using?
My design elements were all inspired by my fascination of jellyfish. I appreciate their different colors, the way they move, and their translucency. All my fabric has some of these components.
In what ways is this collection similar or different than your past work?
I did a collection of gowns last year, but this year I was inspired by everyday fashion including dresses, pants, shorts, skirts and jackets.
