As a self taught seamstress, Bianca Jones-Pearson earned her BFA in Ceramics and Art Education from Rhode Island Collge. Her strong design foundation played a pivotal role in her last collection that made its debut on the StyleWeek runway during Season 11.
With a focus on sustainable, zero waste, vegan garments, Clothes Horse Clothing utilizes both traditional and non traditional fabrics. Mixing new textiles with up cycled curtains, or repurposing vintage fabrics, every scrap is used in the production of the collection.
February 25, 7:15 PM- Debrichhio by Antwan Bryd
Returning to the runway on Thursday, February 25th is designer Antwan Bryd with his women’s line DeBrichhio. Influenced by the world around him, Bryd draws inspiration from a scattered array of elements from architecture, photography, film, and all forms of art, but mostly people.
“There is no better inspiration for fashion than designing for someone’s life,” explains Bryd.
DeBrichhio has matured along with the designer. Beginning in Baltimore, Maryland, Bryd moved to Rhode island where he attended Johnson & Wales University and received his Bachelor’s degree in International Business.
With emphasis on clean lines and sexy silhouettes, DeBrichhio seeks to create the unforgettable. Check out his collection from Season 11 here!
