Madisonpark Collective debuted their Spring/Summer 2013 collection on Tuesday, October 16th on the Runway at The Vibiana during LA Fashion Week. I have included some of the press release about the new collection and the brand below.
Madisonpark’s Designer Trey Alligood III, began his career in fashion nine years ago and has garnered expertise in many aspects of the industry. Before he stumbled into the fashion industry he was in the original cast of The Broadway Show “Blast” from ages 18-23. A back injury sent him back to Los Angeles for physical therapy where he fell in love with fashion and decided to launch Madisonpark Collective.
This season, the collection is entitled “Breaking Free” and the runway show is like no other fashion show in Los Angeles! The inspiration stems from the hard times we have all faced in the last few years, and the hope that spring, will be the dawn of a new beginning. Supima cotton, open weave knits, fine gauge cashmere, lightweight chambray fabrics and soft pastel colors symbolize that hope. Geometric prints symbolize a new structure for the future, and heavily washed distressed denim symbolizes the hardships, pain, struggles we have endured, and the passion and determination it’s taken to get us where we are today.
Madisonpark Collective is designed and manufactured in Los Angeles, California using cutting edge fabrics and trims. We age the highest quality materials to achieve the look and feel of being worn, while others are crisp and new. Every garment is hand crafted ensuring that each piece is truly one of a kind.
Several celebrities including Zac Efron, Gavin Degraw, Kanye West, John Stamos, and Jaleel White have been spotted wearing the brand. You can buy their jeans at Ron Herman, Fred Segal, Atrium NYC, Planet Blue, Halls, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, Saks, and numerous boutiques worldwide as well as online at MadisonparkCollective.com. What do you think of the new styles?
Madisonpark Collective is a brand that I recently got introduced to by the designer and owner. He showed his first fashion show during LA Fashion Week last month and it was a huge success! I have actually included the video of the runway show so you can see the looks and how fun it was! There was a dance routine and it was exciting to watch. The pictures are of the denim from the new collection off the catwalk and I have included some information on the brand below.
All of the denim is from Isko or Candiani, which are top quality mills. They use a selvage fabric that is made from recycled cottons as well as many other amazing fabrics. As for the wash process, they try and use Ozone and the least amount of water possible, but sometimes they can’t get the look they are going for and use more aggressive processes. The coated denim has been a huge hit for the brand too! So what do you think of the collection?
Since its launch in August 2010, Madisonpark Collective has focused on vintage inspired pieces with a modern day twist. The raw sophistication and everyday functionality allows for a rugged, yet refined look. We use exceptional fabrics such as reclaimed military canvas, recycled cottons, salvaged denim, and cashmere to create garments that not only look good but make you feel good as well. Authentic washes, innovative design and being made in the USA has generated a loyal client following.
For fall it’s all about Japanese twills, recycled cottons, salvaged denim, and coated denim in navy, plum, teal, chocolate browns, grays and blacks! Creating beautiful washes on these fabrics as well as keeping some of them clean for a sleek and sophisticated look you can wear from day to night. The classic trouser is offered in several different colors and will continue to have our signature grey hem that can be turned up for a pop of color. Our jackets that are made out of deconstructed reclaimed mail bags from WW II still have post office codes and domestic stamps as well as reclaimed military canvas details. These are all one of a kind and have an amazing worn in vintage look. We are also very excited about introducing cashmere for fall. Cowl necks, cardigans, hoodies, pullovers and scarves that are beyond soft and super comfortable! That just about wraps up the fall collection.
