Chloe Gosselin: “I’ve spent most of the past six months in nature, which has largely inspired my Spring/Summer 2016 collection. Rock formations and their layers of texture and color have been a strong inspiration, as well as the landscapes of Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada and the Rainbow Mountains in China.”
