PHASES’ Own Z Berg Partners with Designer Christy Dawn Petersen on Festival-Inspired Clothing

Exclusive Video for “Cooler” with Christy Dawn Out Now


LA group PHASES‘ own Z Berg has teamed up with designer and friend Christy Dawn Petersen to create several festival-inspired pieces for the designer’s line of sustainably made dresses. They collaborated on a limited edition dress and romper for Christy Dawn, both of which you can see in their exclusive music video for “Cooler” HERE.

Set to perform with PHASES at Coachella in just a few weeks, Z wanted something unique to wear. “I’ve had this vintage baby doll dress for years,” she said. “It was actually the dress I was wearing when I was signed! But it was falling apart so I called Christy to see if we could create something similar but with a more modern flare.”

“It is really exciting to collaborate with Z on these two pieces,” Christy said. “Z radiates creativity and she’s got such a strong vision. The dress is flirty and feminine and the perfect dress for festival season. The Z Jumper is a head turner. It is exactly the kind of piece you’d imagine you would wear if you were playing on stage in front of thousands of people at a festival in the desert.”

The dress (in 5 color options) and romper (with 3 color options) are both available starting today online and in the Christy Dawn store in Venice, CA.

Fresh off an exciting week at SXSW that earned them praise from EllePeople, and Yahoo Music, PHASES have now announced a hometown show at LA‘s The Roxy on May 18, with tickets on sale now. They will continue touring throughout 2016 in support of debut album For Life, including upcoming festival slots at Coachella and Hangout Music Festival as well as a tour with Maroon 5 later this year. More info and tickets for all shows are available HERE.

ABOUT CHRISTY DAWN: Christy Dawn is a Los Angeles based model who started her own line of dresses two years ago. CHRISTY DAWN dresses are beautiful, classic and timeless and made from deadstock fabric to minimize the environ mental footprint. Meaning they use fabric that would otherwise go unused and/or disposed of. Every dress is made by local artisans in Downtown Los Angeles and are sewn with longevity in mind. Additionally, there are only a select number of dresses produced in each print due to the limited amount of deadstock fabric available. Christy designs the dresses herself and sources the deadstock fabric from Downtown Los Angeles.
