We are so happy to welcome Bri Seeley to the Fashion District! The super talented Bri relocated her Seattle design studio to The Academy Awards Showroom Building earlier this year. The move was one of necessity, as she expands her line from custom and couture pieces into a contemporary line. Her first collection is being sold exclusively at Zappos.com this season.
The collection features vintage inspired feminine silhouettes in tans, aquas, and whites. It was inspired by the definition for Escape, to slip or get away, as from confinement or restraint and the avoidance of reality. Seeley’s line in general focuses on embracing femininity and the female figure, as is evident by the designs pictured below.
Bri is currently working on her Spring/Summer 2014 collection which will be debuting at Phoenix Fashion Week later this year. She is actually the 2012 winner of the Phoenix Fashion Week Emerging Designer Program, a 3-month design competition in which Bri took her collection from conception to the runway.
Bri began to create at a young age when her grandmother taught her to sew in rural Minnesota. She continued to build upon her knowledge throughout her high school years, and naturally progressed into a Fashion Design major in college – obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Apparel and Textile Design from North Dakota State University. She spent two years living in Florence, Italy attending the Accademia Italiana and obtained her Master’s Diploma in Fashion Design. During her formal education Bri fell in love with historic fashion and regularly draws upon this, as well as nature, for inspiration. She currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
