Current collection: arkhimodiste

Inspired by the industrial spirit that has shaped our current urban landscape, arkhiMODIste (a nine look collection), investigates culture of the worker, craftsmanship and machinery. Themes of utility, the worker's uniform, structure and modification have informed the design process. Through the bold use of color, pattern, texture and signature silhouettes, arkhiMODIste tells the story of those in our past who created legendary work but were unknown to the public; such as, female WWII workers, construction of New York's finest buildings , the history of Kansas City's garment district, pioneering African American architects and seamstresses. The title of the collection takes meaning from archi- (arkhi-, greek),modi- (latin) and modiste (french).
