Fashion designer Robin Hall of Athena Southwest brought her southwestern line to Paris in October of 2012, and brings it to Tucson today to show the locals what the Old Pueblo is all about. Her new collection of kitschy styles is inspired by designs popular in the southwest in the 1940’s and 50’s and her love of bright colors, ric-rac and hats abounds in the new designs.
Already known as Athena Outdoors for biking and hiking skirts for women and kilts for men, Athena Southwest’s Fiesta Collection takes dressing up to a new level. Hall is dedicated to creating clothing that will express the style, elegance and romance pouring forth from the heart to complement natural style and grace.
Athena Southwest’s clothing is made with natural fibers and decorated with fanciful ribbon and ric-rac trim. Prairie skirts are full, with billowing bright colors, and matching blouses are often classic gingham and squaw dresses in Mexican and Navajo patterns.
