As a West Virginia native and new Alabama transplant, West Virginia University Design graduate Allie Boso is taking elements of nature and incorporating it into an amazingly functional clothing line.
I’m a big fan of these macrame pieces – each custom made piece definitely adds texture to a daily outfit.
Allie gets inspiration for her line pretty much everywhere –
“I’m inspired by anything really. I can find a cool rock or feather on a hike and develop a look around it.” This self proclaimed “up-cycle enthusiast” also gets inspiration from antique stores through vintage patterns and silhouettes. “I never know when I’m going to see or find something that will influence a whole new design line.”
While Alli’s experience from the design studio to selling to local boutiques proves to be impressive, her future continues to show promise as she adjusts to her newest location.
“I made a big move from WV to Alabama this summer and am still trying to get settled and figure out what to do design wise. I’m planning to get an Etsy site up and running soon with handmade clothing, jewelry, and some macrame designs. I’ve sold in boutiques in the past and am always open to continue that route if I’m able to find a boutique near me that fits my style and is open to selling handmade items.”
