Turn Heads in the Medusa Collection
Stop people in their track with these snake-inspired prints by Pittsburgh-based fashion designer Terry Jolo Brand.
If you’re looking for fresh style for fall, or before you head back to school, then be sure to check out Terry Jolo Brand.
Created by Terry Jolo Coulter, a graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, the line specializes in custom designs as well as alterations. Some of the brand’s previous projects include skirts, evening wear, wedding dresses, menswear and children’s clothing. Coulter also operates an East Carson Street boutique on Pittsburgh’s South Side.
If you haven’t made it into Coulter’s shop yet, get ready to see her online. The designer recently was selected to have her pieces sold on Brooklyn-based Nineteenth Amendment, an online marketplace for emerging fashion designers that provides U.S based small-batch manufacturing to the designers. Nineteenth Amendment also assists its designers with direct sales to their customers, as well as guidance on merchandising, public relations and marketing support.
In June, Nineteenth Amendment partnered with Macy’s to have its fashions featured on the Macy’s website, giving the designers, including Coulter, some big-time exposure.
Coulter’s Medusa collection is available now at Nineteenth Amendment. She describes the collection as inspired by the outline and movement of snakes. The multitasking pieces also can be worn in several different ways.
In particular, we like the Separating Dress with Pleats [$199]. The A-line sleeveless dress can be zipped off and worn as a separate top and skirt. As a dress, the piece has cool cutouts on the bodice as well as an underskirt made of soft, stretchy mesh.
Wear it out for a night on the town and you’ll be freezing people in their tracks, in the best way possible of course.
