I was first introduced to Gemma Redux and the line’s fantastic designer, Rachel Dooley, back in early 2011 when I covered the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) presentation during Fall 2011 New York Fashion Week for modacycle.com. I was captivated by the strength of the collection as well as Rachel’s overwhelming enthusiasm and talent. A couple months later we worked together on a Designer Dossier project for the same publication. Following that project we lost touch briefly, each focusing on our respective careers.
So a year goes by, and there I was admiring her work from a far, always encouraging stylists to pull from her, when I got a call about collaborating on a small lookbook. I of course jumped at the chance to work with her again. Here are some highlights from our second project together, her Spring 2013 collection that is now live on her website.
