Ariel Warne is pursuing a B.S. in apparel design at the University of Minnesota and also creating apparel for her line Eleanor & Eve. She designs contemporary ready-to-wear apparel and accessories for the everyday woman. Her clothing is a reflection of her dualistic nature – from day to night, work to weekend, and daring to demure. She often finds inspiration in classic movies, vintage apparel and old Hollywood.
Ariel’s resort-wear collection, “A Mermaid out of Water,” is inspired by her youth spent on the shores of Lake Superior. Her pieces evoke visions of rough hewn fishermen, enchanting mermaids, and smooth-sand beaches spotted with beach glass. Her collection is meant to be worn on a warm European beach, a dazzling night out on the town, or lounging on a sailboat.
