Today’s guest post comes from designer Sarah Hurwitz of Knit York City! I’m super excited to have her on board for the Fall/Winter Collection and as a new member of the Holla Knits family! Especially since we have a shared love of shoulders. A HUGE thank you to Sarah for sharing the inspiration behind her upcoming design!
I couldn’t be more excited about my maiden voyage with Holla Knits! I have always admired Allyson’s work as well as her talented collation of designers for past Holla Knits collections.
As I was working on sketches, I felt a like the HK philosophy was really challenging my imagination. My goal was to design something really daring and fashion forward. Something that I wouldn’t normally be brave enough to wear but a garment that was totally fun and stylish. Holla Knits encouraged me to go wild and crazy!
I really wanted to work on something with a great shoulder detail. I love shoulder details that have been trending over the past few years. Shoulder pads went the way of Designing Women but they are creeping back into the mainstream, worn by some of my favorite fashion icons. I especially love shoulder pads with spikes and studs!
I had so much fun interpreting these fierce looks into knitwear. I can’t wait to see this top worn in so many ways!
