As the days of rain mounted and basements began to fill, it became clear how vulnerable modernity is in the face of Mother Nature...
This renewal leads to a few exciting announcements from The OM Collection team. Read more on our upcoming Flood Sale, launch of a new yoga lifestyle clothing product line and our active apparel whole sale line.
The OM Collection’s inspiration comes from Armstrong’s personal adventures where style needed to be “versatile, travel friendly, elegant, and comfortable.” Katie set out to make clothing one can “wear to a board meeting, then to yoga, then dinner and dancing in Las Vegas or at a concert”. Check out her famous backless dress, a layering piece that can be worn all around the world and in many different settings.
