Model Alyssa Miller designs a luxury sportswear collection for David Lynch Foundation

The Blue Velvet director's charity launches a capsule collection for American retailer Live the Process

The actress and model Alyssa Miller has co-designed a line of sportswear with luxury US brand Live the Process to raise funds for David Lynch's charity.

The American model has designed a six-piece collection which features corset bras, scoop bras and geometric leggings, natty pairs of shorts and T-shirts - all offered in a limited edition floral print. Prices range between $100 and $200 (approx. £58 and £117), in the name of the Blue Velvet director's charity, David Lynch Foundation.

Although the director himself was not involved in the production of the capsule collection, his sound and vision are present. For instance, one of the t-shirts reads “Change Begins Within”, which is the concept and belief of the Foundation. The label and the director have something in common: Lynch’s charity is dedicated to teaching meditation to young victims of post-traumatic stress disorder and abuse, meanwhile, Live the Process is an online hub that promotes holistic and health, and creates activewear on the “basis of enlightment”.

However this is not the first time that the filmmaker's name is seen within the fashion world. Last year, the director made his debut in the industry by designing sets for Kenzo’s autumn/winter 2014 presentation, inspired by the popped colours and monochrome motifs of his work. But unlike Kenzo’s heavy sets, this sportswear clothing is more feminine, featuring pretty flower print in pastel tones; perhaps because it has the creative mind of Miller behind it.

Ms Miller said: “In the short time that I have been meditating it has transformed my life. This collection encapsulates an overall wellness, mind and body. The goal is to bring that wellness into others lives through the Foundation as well as through Live The Process.”
