About this project

Ms. Wood is a husband and wife team with Alicia designing the kimono inspired, sophisticated and edgy separates and evening wear, and Ben adding earthly elegance with his wooden jewelry, accessories, trims (button and buckles) and shoes.

After winning a spot to show our S/S2012 collection at Portland Fashion Week as part of the winning prize for winning the Catapult-Emerging Designer Competition at PFW this year (see video of our show here: www.youtube.com/watch... ), we are excited to take the next step with our line, Ms. Wood. And in order to take that step we need funding which has brought us here to Kickstarter.

We are looking forward to evolving our line from our S/S 2011 collection of which we were asked to create a modest 8 looks, but our S/S2012 collection will be made up of 16 looks in total. Our new collection will include looks from casual and sophisticated separates to dramatic evening wear. We will incorporate pops of color in rich fabrics and our silhouettes will stray from our kimono roots (but not too far, don't worry kimono lovers!). We will continue to refine each look with hats, handbags and other accessories, as well as expand our line of wooden accents; more jewelry designs including necklaces and rings, a clutch or two, as well as 3 additional shoe designs.

As a participant in funding this project your money will go towards the following:

*Materials including: fabric, leather, wood (when salvaged wood is not available), various trims.
*Photographer
*Model
*Hair/Makeup
*Look book development
*Marketing

*If we are fortunate enough and go over our goal amount, the additional money will go toward materials and production of our S/S2012 orders.
