All Hallows Bash was a fun collection to design.  We’ve not had a Halloween group before, so I thought it was a great opportunity to design a fun and bright collection that encompasses iconic motifs like Jack O’Lanterns, ghosts, flying witches, spider webs, and bats!  I really wanted to evoke the night time colors of deep Periwinkle skies, as well as bright oranges and greens reminiscent of pumpkins and apples that time of year.
