Jordan's featured collection, Alex, is unisex and designed for children aged 5-7. It combines oversized street wear silhouettes with bright, optical-illusion-based textiles. We are beyond obsessed with how Jordan approached the stereotypically gendered children's fashion market with such a critical, detailed, artistic eye. She mentions how "throughout history, the children's clothing market has helped maintain the divide between the sexes, offering girls and boys either ultra-feminine or masculine products". Alex was created with a sportswear inspiration intended for all children to play together--regardless of gender. Amen to that, sista.
As a trio of 3 empowered fashionable feminists, we are in love with everything Jordie put together for Alex: the inspiration, the perspective, the designs, the pattern mixing, the textiles (by Sheni Moshabesha), and the cutest little models you ever did see on a runway...literally, ever. You know we love mixing patterns and bright colors, so if we could somehow fit into these petite pieces, we would absolutely try. And those baby white high-top Chuck Taylors? What little mini style ninjas Miss Jordie Rae created!
And take a look at some of the photos from the show last week and be sure to check out Jordan's site for her full portfolio and blog for recent updates. We've got a prettayyyyy good feeling this little design graduate is gonna make a huge splash in the fashion world, so make sure to follow along with her next big adventures!
