Carlie Ballard's Trans- Seasonal 16 collection plays to a monochrome palette with touches of organic chambray blue. She keeps her signature ikat print in key pieces while also bringing to the collection a beautiful and tedious double ikat cross print which was inspired by her recent trip to visit her artisan weavers.
Each of Carlie Ballard's garments are made using individually dyed yarns and traditional wooden hand looms powered by master artisans in Southern India. These are pieces to value, respect and connect with. The label is known for it's bold prints and iconic ikat technique.
The transparency of the label runs through the garment manufacture from the fabric weaving to assemblage. By communicating the human touch in the supply chain, the designer wants the wearer to engage in the depth of beauty, workmanship and value each garment holds.
