Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

This line is inspired by the western film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.  After taking a leather design class, I wanted to incorporate leather into my designs.  

 

While sustainability is becoming a call to action within the fashion industry, producing leather has brought on an ongoing controversy over animal ethics and the effect of the environment.

 

Both natural and vegan leathers result in harmful impacts on the planet.  My line of sportswear utilizes new technology to create a leather look that eliminates some of the negative impacts thatresult from using a skin or faux leather that is composed of plastic.
