Seth C. Olson, B.F.A. Menswear Design, is from Bolder, Colorado. During his time at Academy of Art University, he has interned at Patrik Ervell in New York, and worked as a design and production lead at Aurora by Olson in San Francisco. Seth drew inspiration from Antarctica, specifically the stark contrast between soft, white, powdery snow and hard, sharp cracks in ice. This inspiration is clearly visible in his collection through his unique, hand-made cracked textile fabric. Other innovative materials were used for the collection, including faux fur, vinyl, plain weave cotton, waxed denim, brushed cotton twill, Polartec 300 fleece and cotton flannel. Seth has been offered a full time job with Abercrombie & Fitch.
