about a year ago my partner michael looked at me and said “you love blue and white stripes so much, why don’t you design a women’s stripe collection?” i said “ok!”

truly, that’s how it happened, so here we are a year later and we are about to launch MDS Stripes, a collection of blue and white stripe knits for women- tops, bottoms and dresses. there are also bags and accessories, and a “made to measure” category of cotton skirts. everything is 100% cotton and everything is made in california, and might i add, everything is beautiful!

here is a sneak peek into the marketing campaign, shot by amy neunsinger, modeled by seven of my closest friends- girls that range from the ages of 25 to 50, real girls who love stripes as much as i do, along with some chic people, glamorous places and stylish things that have inspired the debut collection.

MDS Stripes are coming soon, the new website is just weeks away. subscribe (on the left hand side of blog) and get all the news first. start following us here on instagram, facebook and twitter.

i have to say, we are really excited- wishing all of you love and stripes!

thanks amy, hayley, sarah, amy, rebecca, erin, meredith and meghan. also loads of thanks to michael, jennifer, hannah, lexie, laura, justin, corinne and wisit- it takes a team! we have the best there is!
