Nepal Fashion in Montana

I just finished shooting my 4th catalog for Everest Designs. Through the years we have all evolved. Everest Designs created a micro economy in Nepal by having all their clothing products manufactured in Kathmandu.

I have known the owners, Matt and Choti, for ten years and I am always in awe of what they have created. Starting out by selling Nepalese hats at the weekend market in Missoula. Their hats were popular and eventually they opened a store and grew big enough to open a distribution center that sells the Everest Design Brand to stores around the world.

The latest fashion catalog for Everest Designs will show off their designs on gloves, vests and skirts. It is a very unique brand, their products are hand made in Nepal. When the earthquake occurred in Nepal in 2014 Matt and Choti went to Kathmandu and stayed for a while to be sure all their employees were safe. Great people to know and work for ...lucky me
