Dreams Do Come True!
Forty some years ago a passion was born on the ski slopes of Thredbo, Australia. The young girl’s dream of becoming a ski instructor came to fruition for Angie Hornbook years later and half a world away. During her 25 year career, Angie has served as the original head judge for the IFSA, (International Freeskiers Association), worked as a ski instructor, and has dabbled as a competitive athlete in big mountain freeskiing and team league racing. Her alpine experiences have exposed her to some of the harshest climates on earth, spanning the globe from Canada, Alaska, lower 48 USA, to Australia, and Austria.

In addition to the design endeavor, Angie currently works as a traveling examiner for PSIA-RM (Professional Ski Instructors of America-Rocky Mountain), a judge for the IFSA (at the US Extreme Freeskiing Comp), and as an instructor/trainer for Crested Butte, CO Ski and Ride School.

 

Inspiration for Follow This!
One might wonder why anyone would take on such a daunting task as to start out from scratch in the massive outdoor winter apparel industry.
My long love affair with skiwear spurred my desire to return to the creativity, funkiness and fun evident in the suits of years gone by. I was looking for that niche between colourful kids wear and the elite conservative designs currently on the market. The Follow This! fashion philosophy is street-inspired, whimsical, retro.

 

Flagship suit named the Viper was the main inspiration and jumping off point for Follow This!
The one-piece is back in the fun, sexy form of the 70’s with the advantages of the modern day technology. The Viper, crosses generation gaps and offers figure hugging functionality, warmth, comfort of a classic one-piece with the convenience of a 2-piece.
