The most head-turning looks can contribute their savoir faire to the almost imperceptible touches that exude luxury, quality and ingenuity. The flawless finishes, superior craftsmanship, and hands-on approach during every stage of production , results in a a high end product that you can wear again and again
This leads us to our deep appreciation for our world its people and what goes on behind the process of production in your clothing. We are always looking for ways to rework existing products and have used scraps and fabric roll ends to create unique and beautiful couture pieces.
New York City has earned the title “Fashion Capital” not simply by the extraordinarily vibrant concentration of high-end designers, but because the industry has become a self-supporting ecosystem. From design to manufacture to retail, the entire process can happen within a few city blocks. In addition,using locally sourced materials, and local craftsmen to develop our product,, we hope to help in the effort to maintain American-manufactured product confidence .
