History and Texture with Rachel Stickley
Our history is woven into every stitch of denim. Columbus’ sails that carried his ship across the Atlantic were denim, and Southern soil was resplendent with indigo plants in the centuries after. Few colors have the kind of rich history that indigo has and nothing says heritage better than denim. It is always in style, so it’s no wonder that Women’s Wear Daily just published a feature on what’s trending in denim and tapped Rachel Stickley to help visualize what the most creative minds in the industry are coming up with.
Rachel’s styling goes against convention when it comes to thinking about apparel. Shrugging off the tradition of buttoning up models into clothes, Rachel has set the pieces up in a sort of origami showcase, utilizing textured white surfaces to highlight the shapes and feel of the cloth. The natural colors of the fabrics echo off the stark white base, highlighting how Rachel has arranged and folded them, displaying character and giving each article its own personality.
