"My design inspiration typically comes from prompts that I come up with. I have the most fun designing clothing around the idea of it being worn somewhere very specific."
Ashley Knepper, Chismosa Company
"My designs are fun and very colorful! I find inspiration from 90s or early 2000s prints and textures. I find them to be very nostalgic and remind me a little bit of my childhood, making them very personal to me."
"I love creating art and fashion with up-cycled and salvaged materials. My inspirations come from anything that challenges me or puts the world in a different perspective."
Brooke Terrapin, Midwest Twist
"I focus mainly on western wear inspired looks with a twist to a fun and unique modern vibe. I am inspired by my upbringing and the western and agricultural industries."
Nina Winter, TISSU Sewing Studio
"My goal is to inspire & empower a new generation through the art of slowing down, mindful makings, sewing & fashion design. Your imagination and creativity can change the world."
