Age of Aquarius has been a sustainable, environmentally conscious lifestyle brand from conception.
My inspiration and design aesthetic, reflects a combination of my Midwestern roots and West Coast, bohemian chic, California vibe. I consider myself the urban minimalist, who designs eco friendly, timeless, vintage inspired accessories and clothing for active women, to effortlessly add to their existing wardrobes.
2003-2005 I attended Los Angeles Trade Tech for Fashion Design & Merchandising.
2004-2012 I worked as a freelance wardrobe stylist with various Hip Hop and R&B artists, major networks, and production companies, which includ Disney, Telemundo, and MTV.
2003-2005 I deesigned Kristi Moon Originals which was a capsule collection of sustainable one of a kind skirts, made from recycled leather, denim, and other used textiles. This collection was sold in various high end boutiques in New York, Miami and Santa Barbara.
In 2008 I started sketching designs for Age of Aquarius as an eco friendly clothing brand.
From that moment I committed to using only sustainable textiles, and to source my materials from local US based fabric mills. All of my contractors are local and based in Los Angeles, which also helps to reduce my carbon footprint.
In 2010 my first collecition of sustainable athleisure separates was created, which led to AOA Apparel showcasing a at Project Ethos' Fall 2011 runway show, and during The LA Fashion Weekend's Spring 2012 runway show, at Sunset Gower Studios, in the heart of Hollywood.
In February 2012 I won the "Sew Chic" national design contest held by Brother™ Sewing and Cosmo Radio on SiriusXm, for the "Goddess" maxi dress made from bamboo jersey and organic cotton.
In 2015 aoajewels.com was launched.
2018 - 2019 I was a featured accessory designer at multiple Raw Artists showcases in Los Angeles, CA.
Soon in the summer of 2020 AOA Jewels is expanding beyond one of a kind, semi - precious gemstone bracelets into a full line of inspirational accessories.
AOA Jewels will still offer one of a kind custom pieces, with a mix of mass produced accessories as well.
I am also happy to announce that international shipping online will be available soon.
Peace & Blessings,
AOA Apparel S/S 2012 Runway Show Sunset Gower Studios, Hollywood, CA.
