Outdoor Retailer/SLC

ISIS has a new team of designers---and a focused Spring 2013 collection for active women-resulted.

Aida Dress $69 cotton spandex blend w/ruching details, wide shoulder straps for full coverage (thanks!!!!)---waist defining band
At the show we saw a few selections from each sub-group---Rainwear, Adventure -with SPF protection, Move -for gals on the go, Journeys-casual lifestyle, nicely cut in performance fabrics that fashion types would approve of, and supportive Intimates in pretty colors.

Impressive-the functionality of the textiles used ---without the higher prices we see of other apparel lines with a similar mission of outfitting women who like to get going.

Colors are inspired by the Amalfi coast of Italy---and all fabrics used are easy care.
