I/O Bio Merino announces the signing of Alan Ortiz as Design Director. Ortiz made his mark launching Fate Clothing, the pioneer freeride-clothing line that revolutionized today’s outdoor style. Ortiz will be pushing the creative edge of merino clothing with using advanced fabric capabilities and the I/O Bio brand’s emphasis on style.
â€œThe potential for I/O Bio is huge,â€ comments Alan Ortiz from the Boulder based I/O Bio Design Lab. â€œMerino clothing offers incredible functionality in everyday life. I am excited to offer products that are naturally disruptive and culturally significant.â€
Ortiz has had an immediate impact on the brand with his debut design of I/O Bio’s new Outdoor Retailer tradeshow booth in January. Both designers and buyers from all circles stopped to admire the fun yet brash style.
â€œIt’s very exciting to see what Alan is bringing to the brand. I/O Bio customers already expect us to push the envelope and Alan is keeping us saying â€œwowâ€ as his new designs come in. His style and I/O’s fabrics will make a successful match,â€ states Greg McRoberts, I/O Bio Merino, King Cheese.
