Althea Update, Shows Love to Her Midwest Roots

I’ve been faithfully following Althea Harper for a while now. We wrote about her first in Cincy Chic last year when she was on Project Runway. And I’ve been blogging about her sporadically ever since.

Well, here’s another update! Harper just previewed her Spring 2011 collection at NY Fashion Week. In her video interview, she credits her inspiration for the show to her routes in the midwest and Ohio. (heyyyy, thanks for the shout out Althea!)

I really like the direction she’s taking this new collection. She combines tailoring and draping to make silhouettes appear strong, while still feminine and beautiful.
