The special event will take place in River Oaks suburb of Houston and is the mastermind of Jonathan Tinkle, founder and chief creative director of Jonathan Blake LLC. Tinkle, a Houston native and a fashion designer who launched his first collection in October 2013 at the age of 21.
The new Jonathan Blake Spring/Summer Collection includes more than 60 pieces, which will appear on the runway tonight in the form of 40 distinct looks in “cool, calm pastel colors.” The color palette features whites and creams, peach, mint green and various shades of blue, with French blue being the dominant color in this collection. Styles in this collection are soft, feminine and functional.
In addition to expanding his use of the exotic skins that he debuted in some of the designs of his current Fall/Winter collection, Tinkle will continue his use of silk and add silk faille. He has also introduced butterfly-inspired prints into this collection.
“I predict that the show stopper in this collection is a French blue crocodile jacket. Due to the limited supply of this exotic skin, I can only produce three of these gorgeous jackets,” Tinkle commented.
