Allison Wonderland

Allison Wonderland is a Canadian line by designer Allison Smith from British Columbia.
She often goes by the idea of “How much food and drink you can consume without having your belly pop out”, she designs cute clothing for living a full life essentially.
You can find her wares on her online store, or mudsharkstreetware online store or leelush’s online boutique or in shops across Canada, the US and in Tokyo.

What do you do?
I design a line of clothing. Twice a year a new collection of about 15 pieces comes out.

What inspires you to do what you do?
Living life everyday and seeing stylish ladies around me. Daydreaming about sunny picnics, tipsy nights on the town and delicious lunches with friends
How did you get started?
I went to Kwantlen College in Richmond, BC. I worked in the rag trade in Montreal, travelled and then decided to start my own line.
What is your current vice or trend or obsession?
I just finished the spring/summer 2010 line, all my energy is spent and my obsessions have been channeled there. I cant remember what they were!! Right now my main vice is going to the beach as much as I can.
What advice would you give to someone else trying to make their ideas a reality?
Learn what you can working for other people! Dont rush into starting your own line.
Any sources of inspiration you want to recommend?
Trolling the internets, so many cute sites!! Old magazines from decades past
