Eva Franco, Fashion Design '94After graduating from FIT, Eva Franco, subject of the summer 2010 Sparks, decamped to the Philippines for a design job, only to be scouted by local casting agents for roles in commercials. Franco embraced the opportunity, signing with an agency and moving to Los Angeles, where she pursued an acting career that included a role on NBC's soap opera, Passions.
All the while, she continued her design work, selling handmade dresses, often made from vintage bedding, at L.A.'s flea markets. Eventually her balance of interests shifted and she launched her eponymous label. It is now sold through Anthropologie, in more than 400 stores worldwide, at Franco's own retail outlet in Irvington, VA, and at evafranco.com.
Collected here are a few images from Eva Franco's fall 2010 line.
