About the brand:
Rachel Comey is an American independent fashion designer based in New York City and is the founder of Rachel Comey, her eponymous clothing, shoes, and accessories brand that grew out of the downtown arts scene of early 2000's New York. A consistent design practice at Rachel Comey is to pose questions: How can fabrics and techniques be engaged to formulate new ways to rethink, change or relate our everyday experiences? In what ways is it possible to affectively(from the philosophical term affect, not a typo for effectively) relate notions of empowerment to the people that wear our clothes? How can we challenge performative notions of what it means to be sexy? How can we look at traditional techniques and craftsmanship from a modern perspective and reinvigorate the artisanal communities that maintain these crafts?
