Adam: Fashion You’ll Flip Over

Lindsay Jean-Marie Adam is a fashion designer and textile artist from Akron, Ohio. After graduating from the University of Akron with a bachelor of fine arts in fashion merchandising degree in 2003, she started designing her own knitwear collection for women and young girls. ?Working from a home studio, Lindsay develops her own patterns. Among them is her signature flip sweater, for which she’s known throughout the U.S.

Two different looks from one sweater

Lindsay spent five years perfecting this unique and versatile type of sweater. “It’s great for all climates because of the open stitch,” she said. “Simply wear the sweater long or flip upside down and wear short. The short look can also provides a hood. You get two sweaters in one!”

Along with hundreds of sweaters to choose from, this wearable art fashion designer also creates gorgeous ponchos, gloves, scarves, shawls and vests. Plus, she designs and hammers metal pins to hold the scarves in place.  Working eight or more hours a day six days a week, she takes great pride in her open weave style and loves sharing her expertise combining different textiles. Examples include a faux fur yarn with a soft plush cotton blend and a silk bamboo yarn along with a bumpy chenille yarn. “My sweaters have an unusual flare to them with a tailored scoop back accenting the beauty of a woman’s figure,” she said.

Lindsay learned about fashion and textiles by watching her mother and grandmother transform yarn and fabric into masterpieces, adding, “Growing up, I was blessed to be around powerful women. They taught me to keep moving forward, follow my dreams and never look back for any moment.”

It’s no wonder then that this fashion knitwear artist’s motto is: Confident Women Wear Wearable Art Pieces by Lindsay Jean-Marie. Her goal is to manufacture women’s apparel that makes women feel good about themselves. She believes in encouraging women to express themselves and strives for sophistication and elegance with her colorful creations, which come in black, grey, off-white, tan, taupe and white to name just a few.

Lindsay exhibits at shows throughout the U.S. and is excited to be at Shaker Woods, booth 162, for the first time. She welcomes custom orders, saying, “I strive in giving each customer a one-of-a-kind experience.”

Every time you see The Lindsay Collection, you’ll see something new as she changes her materials all the time.
