Fashion Week 2014 - FIDM - Kelly Knaggs
FIDM/ Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising
A resident of Riverside, Calif., Kelly Knaggs’ first collection is comprised of winter action sports attire for both men and women. Appealing to snowboarding enthusiasts, she was inspired by electronic music and the casual, anti-trend sub culture that exists in Southern California. Her designs — in bold blues, greens, burgundy, and greys — are for fashion-forward boarders who aim to stand out on the mountain. Knaggs’ collection was part of a special industry partnership between FIDM and Signal Snowboards; her designs served as the inspiration for 11 FIDM graphic design students who created custom graphics for snowboards that were handcrafted by Signal Snowboards at its headquarters in Huntington Beach, Calif.
