Malorie Urbanovitch Spring 2015: The inspiration?
“The inspiration is about the type of girl who wears it–she’s carefree and has a certain type of spirit. The clothes are very comfortable, easy to wear and are all machine washable. You can feel beautiful and still have an easy lifestyle—you’re a busy girl.”
