Kora Gleason’s designs revolve around her desire to create a versatile and lasting quality in her clothing. She strives to design in a way that inspires the wearers own expression and encourage a never-ending experimentation and free approach to dress. She believes the integrity of a garment lies in the quality of craft and its ability to become a lasting part of the wearer’s lifestyle. The result is a clean aesthetic combining timeless characteristics with modern attitudes. Kora has been chosen to show her work in several fashion shows and competitions as part of MN Fashion Week, including Minneapolis’ largest fashion event, Envision Artopia. She continues to develop her craft and professional experience as a design intern at Tara LaTour, a bridal designer based in Minneapolis MN.
This collection is designed as a professional wear line with precise and intricate attention to detail, giving each piece raw yet refined character. Subtle hints of western inspiration and classic silhouettes are used to create and elegant fusion of contrasting elements.
