Eco-luxury Infant Clothes Designer Sandy Swan for Holy Cow

Sandy Swan is the lead designer for Holy Cow. Her bio is an impressive design history that includes little boy’s apparel at OshKosh B’Gosh for six years. She recently created the kids collection in collaboration with Nordstrom stores.

Sandy founded A Head of Her Time, an award-winning couture bridal and retail costume company in Minneapolis. Other feathers in her hat are design stints with DKNY and Phillips-Van Heusen Corp. Gee, in addition to fashion design, a higher education background in textile and millinery doesn’t hurt. Add marketing with world-renowned institutions to that!

It’s obvious that Sandy pays special attention to the detail of each piece. After all, the Holy Cow mission is to design and produce the best clothing on Earth. Watch for Holy Cow Kids available Spring 2010 in department stores and online.

Sandy’s boss, Holy Cow Founder and CEO Justin Barrett, tells me she loves to volunteer and that working with children off the job inspires her with positive energy. How nice to be appreciated.

Written by Delia Montgomery

I am Delia, d/b/a Chic Eco on, and established myself as an eco fashion guru by learning "who makes what in the world of environmental fashion and design."

Enjoy reading some of my freelance writing about environmental design, fashion and art -- from both consumer and supplier perspectives. You may notice I focus most on individual eco designers, movers and shakers.

From sustainable fashion apparel to paint and flooring, discoveries are a rush. I get my kicks this way. I also offer sales representation of earth-friendly designed products for wholesale buyers. Retailers may take advantage of my services with factory-direct pricing. Spend less time sourcing and prevent green-washed purchases!

My other forte is connecting suppliers with business-to-business tools. Aspects of my business vary with consulting services while I'm proud to be the aide that embraces unique and innovative gigs.

I'm originally a Kentucky Blue Grass gal who relocated to Maui early 2006 and the tropical Puna District of Big Island, Hawaii late 2007. Walk the talk is my motto here.

Early 2009 I constructed a yurt home office in a semi-urban setting on a tiny lot. My water comes from the sky, contained in a catchment that's not likely to dry in this rain forest. The electric is designed for solar conversion. I grow about 30% of my food organically, compost, and recycle to the hilt. Permaculture with a full eco system is my gardening style.

In fact, gardening is my ultimate joy. I seek gigs like design, weeding and planting between other jobs. My love is Hawai'i which has more climate zones than any state. There are frequent earthquakes here, typically under a 3.0 magnitude, and I happen to dig the vibrations. It's a wonderful simple life in paradise. As I grow older and wiser, I become more and more grateful.
