WHAT INSPIRED SUMMER OF COLOR?
My love of color runs deep, especially during the sunny days of Summer. The Summer of Color Collection was inspired by the bold hues of the Mediterranean…deep blues, vibrant pinks, and punchy reds.

The pieces are incredibly versatile, and easily transition from casual days to sassy nights. And of course it’s all full of exciting colors, patterns, and feminine details! #sugarplumstyle
DID YOU DESIGN THE CLOTHES?
I’ve learned so much from our first two Collections, and was excited to be more involved in the design process with the Gibson team this time. We started in February (remember those ‘secret’ trips to Los Angeles?!), where the creative director and design team of Gibson presented beautiful moodboards and inspiration for the upcoming summer trends. From there, we developed a theme and determined the pieces for our Collection.
Then we chose favorite colors and started playing with print ideas. And since it’s our third Collection, we were able to pay more attention to fun details! Once the group was edited down, the selection was presented to Nordstrom! (Always an exciting step!)
The next few months are spent perfecting the cut and fit of each piece, tweaking the colors and patterns…basically getting everything exactly right, and always with you in mind! This Summer of Color Collection brings together my Sugarplum style and Gibson’s expertise in design, fabric, and fit, and I could not be more proud and excited for what we created!!
And while I don’t have any official design experience, I do know what I like, and how I want to look and feel in clothes. Gibson took those thoughts and feelings, and turned them into another perfectly ‘Sugarplum’ Collection!
I have this opportunity because of YOU, dear friends!, and am humbled beyond words for your support and faith in me. Your enthusiasm over the years is what led to this, and I’m forever grateful to you. We wanted this Summer of Color Collection to bring you joy, and make your season colorful!
I’ll be revealing more glimpses of the pieces and behind-the-scenes in the coming weeks, and am positively bursting with excitement for you to see it! Hurry up, June 6!!
