MEET … FINALIST NUMBER THREE
Allison Helliwell graduated from Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago with a degree in Fashion Design and works as a clothing designer specializing in women’s ready to wear apparel for her own original clothing label, Allilamodie Designs. She does everything from design to making the patterns to sewing the finished product.
She sets herself apart from other designers by incorporating hand knitting and using high-end materials in unconventional ways. In design work, she mainly uses natural fiber fabrics and fair trade yarn that encourages financial stability in poor countries. She also uses reclaimed yarn and vintage fabrics when available. Synthetic materials, which are mostly products of recycling are also used in her work.
