More leftover 80's fashion - if the polka dots, plaids, stripes and florals don't get ya - how about the white hose leftover from the Lady Di days of the early 80's?

big hair and Joan Jett hair

  • doing our day job and scheduling carpet installations
  • secured a temporary booth space at the Dallas Apparel Mart

Our design inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes, in all forms, and from all angles. The Heritage Departure collections were born out of wanderlust. This transitional collection plays with colors and silhouettes that work beautifully in summer, fall, and beyond.
