The Ice Princess design challenge over at Pattern Observer recently wrapped up. Here are three textile designs I created with ski apparel and equipment in mind.

Stay tuned. I'll be sharing more of the collection soon. And check out my mood board containing my pattern designs and photography from my favorite alpine playground  -- Colorado and the Rocky Mountains! 

Mood board for the Ice Princess Collection created by Chris Olson

I live in Colorado and love-love-love to ski and hike in the mountains. Here is a brief description of my collection.

My customer: Snow lovers and high altitude junkies. For this market I’m interested in how colors and patterns work together to create energizing, feminine prints for ski/snowboard apparel and equipment.

My inspiration: Ice and snow reflecting in the Colorado light. Star gazing in the mountains. Motion inspired designs. Snowscapes. Romantic florals.

My Style + Trends: Mixed media. Photo-real images. Hand painted. (Many patterns are available as technically correct repeats.)
