linen collection Tina selects unique color combinations for her linen garment line with an affinity to a neutral base. Each piece is a classic silhouette to be layered with other linen pieces or color brights from her Voile and Prairie collections. Pieces are special in shape and form, raw edges and stitching. Contoured lines with curves and unique turns enhance the fall and drape of the linen, also bringing movement in every piece. Gloriously comfortable, soft and prewashed yet sophisticated all at the same time. Spring and Summer months embrace lightweight cloth in black, lemon ivory and rose pink. Styles are classic and celebrate a simplicity in design and construction.

prairie collection With a vast collection of her own designed prints, Tina’s signature cotton group of Prairie dresses and pants are simply delightful. Inspired by a southern Texas prairie visit Tina again melded her love of pattern and design with a grouping of singature pieces. Somehow, ironically fitting into a current trend of pattern play, Tina’s eclectic mix of pattern and color combined with her clever silhouettes create, truly oneof-a-kind pieces. No two dresses are alike. They may follow a specific style like Champagne shown here, but fabrics, and unexpected pieces show up in the garments to create signature collector pieces. The stitching is beautifully designed to appear messy and uneven but works cleverly in a ‘sweet’ sort of way. Laundered and soft. Shows in specific color groups.
