fashionSPARK 2015 designers dish on their couture concepts and preview their fashionSPARK wares. Dig urbanwear? The avant-garde? Maybe chicken suits aflame? Stay tuned. Counting down to the Wear What You Are Runway Show on September 19, ArtsNow will spotlight one of the twelve fashion designers each weekday. Today, check out Elena Caron + Maria Juri Designs.

Your style: Vintage-inspired.

fashionSPARK sneak peek? Our goal is to train a tiger to carry a baby on its back while holding an umbrella to walk upright down the catwalk. If that doesn’t happen for “safety reasons” or because “that’s not what this show is about,” we’ll settle for featuring a collaborative vintage-inspired collection. Our fabrics and clean lines are the things to look for. The prints will focus on strong women in history presented alongside much softer looking watercolor flowers and vibrant embroidery.

SPARKcon, the annual interdisciplinary creativity, art and design festival, begins September 17 in downtown Raleigh.
