New York Fashion Week designs are often peppered with inspiration—but perhaps none quite so original as designer Gretchen Jones’ (winner of Season 8 Project Runway) latest designs. Made of about 70% ethical materials, the organic cottons, hand-loomed resistant-dyed batiks and hand-painted vistas of the setting sun were inspired by two well-known Joans—Didion and Baez. When Jones wasn’t designing she used her downtime to read Didion’s “Where the Kissing Never Stops,” an essay about Joan Baez’s early years, which in-turn had her listening to Baez’s “Any Day Now”. The result is uniquely Jones/Joan’s—an eclectic, confident and of course, feminine mix.
