Fashion designer Hilton Hollis will bring his fall collection to R Meyers Thursday and Friday in celebration of the 39th annual Renaissance Ball benefiting the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.
He started his own line in 2005 and describes his clothes as traditional with a modern edge. A trip to Scotland inspired his fall collection, a rich mix of plaids, color and intricate details.
Born in Natchez, Miss., and loyal to his Southern roots, Hollis continues to find inspiration in the surroundings of his upbringing as well as his many travels around the world. He moved to New York in 1997, studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology and trained under Tim Gardner from Calvin Klein.
Even at a young age he loved sewing and art, and that passion developed into a career and a way to help others. Hollis said it’s truly rewarding when you are given a talent and give back by using your talent for the betterment of others.
This will be Hollis’ second trip to Oklahoma City in a year. He was at R Meyers last September meeting customers and showing his fall 2013 collection. R Meyers is in Nichols Hills Plaza. For a private appointment, call 842-1478.
