Jennifer Cantwell

Jennifer Cantwell is an instinctive designer; most of her inspirations come from children, their absence of judgments influence, and their freedom to express themselves.

"Over thinking is the most negative thing I can do while creating. When I let things happen naturally […] I am entirely happy with the outcome".

Her two collections, The Innocent Eye and Instinct, are based on the same concept and ideas: children and their careless about other opinions. Their behavior and the ability to do what they feel is right, trusting their intuitive capacity.

"I wanted to express youth and the idea that we can still mix polka dots and stripes […] or wear knee socks with lace on them if we want to".

For the photo-shoot of her collection The Innocent Eye, she developed all the accessories: "I get lost entirely in the innate detail of each piece I create".
Jennifer, to shoot this collection, collaborated with the photographer Kylie Beiharz, who had the same vision, and similar eye for detail and taste.

Since she was a child she loved to paint and draw, and to feel the difference clothes fabrics. For her it was natural to begin a fashion designer career.
"As a young designer, you must go into it with respect for yourself, and never become a slave to the fashion industry or you will loose sight of your truly meant to become".
