Aimee g's designs are for the fashion-forward womanwho eschews typical mainstream trends. Fluid, sculptural shapescombined with prints and artful colors in eco-friendly fabrics areintegral components of each new collection. The designer's ownpreference for more unrestrained styles is an intrinsic one. " Istarted sewing when I was 13 and I hated using patterns," she says,recalling her childhood in rural Indiana. "But once I figured out Icould make my own designs, I was set free."
Aimeetrained in fashion and costume design at Purdue University beforemoving to New York City, where she completed her degree in fashiondesign at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Her resume includesworking for labels such as Christian Dior, Oscar de la Renta, DKNYUnderwear, Victoria's Secret and Marc Jacobs, before Aimee finally launched her own line in 2004.
Inaddition to being spotted on celebrities such as the Dixie Chicks,Janet Jackson, Shirley Manson, Britney Spears and Helena Christensen, Aimee g designs have been featured in Women's Wear Daily, Brazilian Vogue, Italian Vogue, The New York Post, Oxygen, Vis-a-Vis, New York Metro, Time Out, Fashion Manuscript, Fader, as well as other print and web-based publications.
As a nature enthusiast, an avid runner, and a raw-foodist, Aimeesoon began to incorporate more eco-friendly fabrics such as organicpima cotton, recycled polyester, and linen into her collections tobetter reflect her own personal ethos and lifestyle. Today the Aimee gline consists of 65% organic/sustainable materials and nearly 100%natural fibers. A New York-based designer and a proponent of buildingstrong relationships with local vendors and manufacturers, Aimeehas also taken efforts to ensure that her collections are producedlocally in New York. "Women should never have to sacrifice substancefor style," she says. This statement reflects not only the aesthetic,but also the spirit of the Aimee g line.
