Buffalo Loves Cotton /...

“Soft Architecture” Cotton is a natural fabric every one can relate to and Buffalo New York is such a welcoming historical city, giving these two a perfect relationship. The patterns come from the inspiration of the cotton flower and the beautiful tiles on Buffalo downtown buildings, mixing hard and soft structures; while the garment silhouettes are formed after structured buildings. The colors are soft and feminine to help bring out the beauty in the clothes. The dresses and separates can be worn out on the town or out to brunch. The target market for Soft Architecture is 20-35 year old women.
