Isabel Holden's Fashion Design portfolio features work from her four years pursuing her BFA in Fashion Design at Marist College. It spans from her most recent work to archives of her past.
Ultimately inspired by what will be the imagined brand launch of IHOLDEN: a slow fashion, wardrobe essentials brand, centered around reimagining traditional garments and making them feel new.
Highlights an emphasis on sustainability and the thought process behind a closed circle product life cycle. Isabel went on to receive the 2019 CFDA Liz Claiborne scholarship for her sustainability efforts.
Focus on draping techniques and garment manipulation. Isabel particularly explored the concept of Subtraction Cutting as developed by designer Julian Roberts, as well as digital textile design in her earlier garments.
Through spending her freshman year studying in Italy as a part of Marist's Freshman Florence Experience, Isabel drew a lot of inspiration from the new experiences and world that surrounded her.
