#BAMDreamBabe: Joanna Williams
To celebrate the launch of our new denim line we reached out to our circle of favorite inspiring women and outfitted them with their very own pair of BAM denim.
Here we follow up with one of our Dream Babes, Joanna Williams, at her studio to see how she's been wearing her Collector Fit denim - And since she is a master of vintage textiles, we also dressed her up in our new 1950s-inspired embroidered Cherry Collection made exclusively for MatchesFashion.com
Tell us a bit about you and what you do.
"I own Kneeland Co., a Textile & Design Concept Studio, sourcing vintage and antique prints that are sold to designers for inspiration. In addition, I consult on various projects in fashion and home related to the creative design process."
We love to hear about vintage finds. What’s your favorite vintage denim score of all time?
"I always go back to a pair of vintage Levi’s cut-offs that I found at a thrift store in 8th or 9th grade. They fit me perfectly, and that was the first time I had the Levi’s moment that every girl has when she finds the perfect vintage pair. It’s like they were made for you and you only, to give you magical powers. I always wore a brown vintage belt with them that had painted birds all over it. I still own the belt, but I lost the shorts sometime in my twenties. Total devastation."
What has been your favorite moment in your BAM denim so far?
"I wore my BAM denim to a wine bar not long ago and met up with a couple of friends I hadn’t seen in a long time. It was a hot summer night filled with too much rosé and it was the most fun I’ve had on a night out in LA in a while. I had a fresh tan and brought some good conversation and I felt pretty damn good."
We’ll be following up with each of our BAM babes over the next few months, to hear tales of days spent since - in their BAM denim. Stay tuned!
