Lindsey Thornburg

Lindsey Thornburg comes from the mountains of Aspen Colorado where the terrain of snow and elevated land first inspired her interest to couple purpose and fashion. Influenced by her transient New York City life and travels to South America she began to design cloaks.
For her new collection Lindsey Thornburg journeyed to Machu Picchu. While traveling through the countryside of Peru she was overwhelmed and inspired by the versatility of the Highlanders attire. These indigenous people layer bold colors and sarapes in such an eloquent way that the amount of hidden layers became almost transparent.
