The new collection is called SUBDUCTION but what does that mean? It kind of sounds and looks like seduction. Many of the pieces and the lovely ladies wearing them are seducing but in fact subduction has its own special significance.
Subduction is a geologic process which has informed and developed the geography and geology of the pacific North West. As the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate converges with the North American plate, it slides under it (subduction) which creates volcanos and strong earthquakes among other things! The plate boundaries are off shore, deep under the ocean.
This fascinating process happens very slowly every day and usually goes unnoticed but the results of it can be seen in the dynamic Pacific NW landscape.
