Meet five designers showing at Frost: Fashion Denver's Holiday Market
Inspiration can come from unexpected places. For Talia Sandoval, artist and co-owner of MEANt Clothing, it was a piece of found art, a simple paper crane. Inside that crane was a quote, one that spoke to the idea of creating beauty that moves. From there, Sandoval began making art though clothing -- hoodies decorated in vibrant colors, hats embroidered with paint splashes, patterned leggings and loose-fitting T-shirts.
Along with her business partner, Lauren Kettle, Sandoval creates uniquely patterned clothing that's meant for movement; before selling online and in local boutiques, Sandoval could be found hawking MEANt's designs at concerts. "It's a little luxury, a little classic, a little street," says the designer of the brand's aesthetic.
From infinity scarves and men's T-shirts to headbands and the brand's signature "whomper" -- a sleek tank-dress in multiple colors and pattern variations -- MEANt has something for everyone. At this weekend's market, MEANt will be selling bracelets beginning at $12, with hoodies that go up to $120.
