Two underground and aspiring designers from NYC, that should be known around the world.
First of all: This name! A person with this name HAS to do something outstanding. The 46-year-old Designer from Brooklyn is already a selfmade designer. He had two labels (Womyn and JR Morrissey Trouser) which he sold successfully and started in Fall 2011 his new Label “Morrissey”. His looks are not too loud but still have that little thing about them, that make them stand out.
The 27-year-old designer, based in New York, studied at the Washinton University in St. Louis and also at the College of Art there before she was an intern for Zac Posen and worked for Alice + Olivia. Now she started her own thing with her Label “Novis”. Her dresses are basically classic silhouettes combined with either bright colors, textures or details that are unexpected and fresh.
