I had the pleasure of sitting down for a chat with 20 year old designer and Santa Monica native, Jordan Lindsy. Her clothing line, Loose Morals, launched this year and is the perfect blend of edgy, chic california lounge wear any girl could ask for. Well fitted, sassy slogan tees paired with cozy yet classy sweatpants are the highlights of her line. I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at her new Holiday flash collection video and I'm swooning over her newest clever tanks already!
Not only does this young fashionista have a phenomenal fashion sense, she also has a shiny, comedic outlook on life as well. Just a few minutes into our chat and I was already a huge fan of her AND her loose morals. Read on and I'm sure you'll fall in love with her (and her line) just like I did.
How would you describe your personal style?
Unfiltered and Fearless. Vagabond, spontaneous. It depends on the day.
How does that influence your line?
Well, that pretty much IS my line…
When you get dressed in the morning, what do you pick out first?
Jewelry and Undies and I take it from there.
What's your biggest creative influence?
My ever-changing life and old, dead rockstars: Keith Richards, Steve McQueen, and ELVIS! and my dog, Nala. She's a beacon of light, always my inspiration. She keeps me going in this crazy game of pick up sticks!
If you weren't a designer, what would you be?
Baby Blues Banana Cream Pie & Gidget (haha)
3 things currently on your "to-do" list:
- apologize to my friends for not having any spare time
- reconstruct a 1950's Harley by hand
- take a cooking class
Pretty much in that order!
What song would you say best describes your line?
Black Velvet by Alana Miles
When you do have spare time, what do you do?
Do you have an alter ego?
Doesn't everyone?! Mine is Cut Throat Cowgirl. She's slightly bi-polar.
How do you come up with the clever slogans for your tees?
Sparks of brilliance in other people - recorded in iPhone notes
What's one thing from your Holiday Flash line that you couldn't live without?
My "not out of my mind, just out of ammo" muscle tee.
Anything you'd like to say to young, aspiring designers out there?
"Anything is possible. The mistakes and hurtles you'll come across are just learning experiences. Turn them into your inspiration."
