The Wild West Collection Draws inspiration from Nashville and artists like Kacey Musgraves, who both paige and rhiannon love. upcycling fashion is a passion of the designers, and they felt that a western theme could allow them to pursue this through denim. Some of the inspiration also drew from the popularity of cowboy hats in pop culture right now and how the western aesthetic has changed.

The denim corset is constructed with denim from thrifted jeans and was patched by the designer. the designer loves incorporating sustainability into fashion when able to, as she used a seam ripper to rip the Levi’s patch off of a pair of the jeans and sewed it onto the front of the corset.
The pleated skirt in this look is constructed with the same material as our red dress. the group's intention had always been to have a pleated skirt as a part of the collection, but they originally intended it to be denim. However, this idea changed with cohesiveness in mind. The top is made of a spandex material, making it extremely stretchy and comfortable.
the red dress is inspired by Kasey musgrave's song, 'velvet elvis,' and it was originally imagined as a red velvet dress. as the design process continued, the designers felt that the paisley print pattern would allow for more cohesion within the collection. the white jacket is made from white denim, with fringe lining the sleeves and back.
The denim & bandanas used in this collection were reused in the creation of this collection. 1800 gallons of water are used to manufacture one pair of jeans, making denim recycling extremely important.
the designer hopes to make more sustainable corsets like this one in the future and sell them on her instagram @rhicreate_it
