Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall ’12 Designer Dossier: Amy Bond

Amy Bond was born in Pocatello, Idaho, and grew up in Texas, Illinois, & Pennsylvania. She graduated from Stephens College with a B.F.A. in Fashion Design and worked as an assistant designer at St. Pucchi in Los Angeles, before starting her own clothing line in 1999. She completed her M.F.A. in Fashion Design through the Academy of Art University’s Online Fashion Program. Amy was inspired by complex shapes and construction – but strove to make the complexities appear clean and minimal. She used fabrics that would bring light and movement to the collection, including silk georgette, silk charmeuse, and Schoeller-Aeroshell.
