city muse

We are a brand with an urban flavor. We make all of our collections in the garment center in New York City. Our values dictate that we join the community of the concerned to reduce waste by employing existing surplus luxury fabric.

My goal for designing clothes is to provide scaffolding for our bodies in order to express the things we don’t in words.

Our little business grew out of my firm commitment to the notion that clothing is recruited to make a self. It’s a psychological journey for me as well as an artistic one.

Each garment is made from a small team of dedicated sewers who work in New York City and live in its surrounding boroughs. 

The business begins and ends with me, shepherded, navigated by my wingwoman, Marianna Gutowski who manages all things, including me.
