Project Ethos Hosted By Kristian Weathers featuring designers: Hale Bob, Nicole Miller, LubOV TumanOVA, Chrissie D. Swimwear, Liberty Garden, and Blank Silk.

Blank Silk- Combining her concentrated studies of Painting, Graphic Design and Eastern Religion - Hinduism at Elon University, and extensive coursework in Couture Embellishment & Applique at The Parsons School of Design, Meghan Walsh had a larger vision in mind; she wanted to journey in search of embodying all that she was inspired by and applying it to form. After first backpacking throughout India in 2003, Meghan has repeatedly returned to the Continent and its culture for inspiration; collecting mental images of color, texture and feeling. Absorbed into Meghan's Debut Spring 2011 collection are the rich artistic tradition and vivid colors of India and the influences of the private Haweli in Jaipur where Meghan spent four months developing her new line. It was this experience that inspired Meghan's vision for Blank Silk: to create a luxury lifestyle brand rooted in sustainable values and enduring quality. Both referencing and supporting Indian culture are hallmarks of the line, visible not only in the timeless design but also in the production techniques and brand philosophy. With the company's basis in fine silk and wearable art, Meghan plans to use the ready to wear collections to establish a strong brand identity, allowing for collaborations in the field of accessories, spa, home, and travel. Meghan plans to attract a consumer interested in luxury travel, unique life experiences and refinement by providing quality merchandise that transcends trend, season, and fashion itself, returning to couture-like fabrication and authenticity.

Chrissie D. Swimwear- My passion in becoming a Swimsuit Designer started at the age of 12 years old. Thanks to my mother whom thought me all the tricks and secrets in sewing. Now my inspiration to persuade my passion, have been my two children and my husband. Instagram: @chrissiedswimwear Twitter: chrissie_d_smwr

Hale Bob- Hale Bob's creator, Daniel Bohbot, started his work in Paris. Immersing himself in the art, music and film of that city Bohbot developed a style and viewpoint that combined pop culture with the world of couture. During a 2001 visit to Los Angeles, Bohbot realized that the "City of Angels" was the place to launch the designs that would quickly make his clothes must-have fashion for Hollywood's celebrity clientele and for taste makers worldwide. Salma Hayek, Halle Berry, Heidi Klum and Eva Longoria are all fans who have come to love the look and experience of Hale Bob. They know that Daniel Bohbot and Hale Bob create clothing that sets you apart from the crowd. All of the prints used by Hale Bob are designed and developed in the Hale Bob studios in Los Angeles and are exclusive to the Hale Bob brand and cannot be found anywhere but Hale Bob. @halebob_official Twitter: @hale_bob

For each item sold he is committed to providing a potentially life saving medical treatment. It's that simple. One item sold, one life changed. Instagram: @liberty_garden Twitter: @libertygarden1

LubOV TumanOVA- "Copper Fairy Tale" The main emphasis of the collection is the use of copper decor and accessories that bring a certain charm and uniqueness to dresses and suits. Copper has useful healing properties; it improves skin, stabilizes blood pressure and has a beneficial effect on the entire body, making the dresses in this collection not only beautiful but also useful. The designer, inspired by her travels in eastern countries and cultures, has created a collection in a new color scheme. Suits and dresses are in more formal style. Cocktail and evening dresses carry delicate peach, copper, sapphire, and turquoise colors and shades. Most important, however, is that the hand-made copper ornaments are in harmony and follow the contours and colors of the collection. The new collection of colors are warm, pleasing to the eye and bewitching. The fabric, consisting of eastern chiffon, lace and natural silk, gives a sense of comfort and beauty....The accessories treat the body and the soul... A magical union of fabric and metal; an oriental fairy tale with a modern edge! Twitter: @LubovTumanova

Nicole Miller-With a degree in fine arts from The Rhode Island School of Design and a degree from l' École de la Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture Parisienne in Paris, Nicole Miller combines her art training with couture technique. This, along with her French heritage, has given her a unique style and vision. Her irreverent style of clothing has been worn by celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Joss Stone, Jennifer Aniston, Beyoncé, Blake Lively and Eva Longoria among others. Philanthropically minded, Nicole supports primarily environmental causes such as Waterkeeper and Rocky Mountain Institute as well as many children's charities.
