After the storm

Today we launch our N.Y.F.W special. We dedicate this week to the legacy and genius of Alexander McQueen.

Featuring STUDY NY. A jumpsuit made using one full square of recycled vintage printed cotton. Wrapped, folded, pleated, slit and re-sewn, with no cutting and no wastage involved. Only two of these jumpsuits will ever exist. The grid top is made from metallic silk and utilizes the full width of the fabric. Platforms borrowed from Tara's shoe closet.

Who is Study NY?
Study is the creation of Brooklyn based designer Tara St. James. As a special treat Tara's boyfriend has drawn us something too. Click away >
