LETTER FROM THE EDITOR JUNE

DEAR READER, When I quit my job five years ago, I thought I had lost my mind. There were days where I felt as though I was swimming through static: that the absence of who I knew myself to be and the presence of who I had yet to become were leaving me empty. My past had come with the ease and comfort of an old sweater, and I had settled into it (truly settled) without considering that I had other options. I had a job, an apartment, a budding 401k, and an overwhelming sense of exhaustion. There was no adventure left; I chose an easy path for fear that I may find failure should I chase after my dreams. I was aware of a youth that was escaping me- not in years, but in choices. I left my beautiful little hometown in Alabama in pursuit of that dream, and I didn’t look back. At twenty-two, I found art like a punch in the gut. It became the catalyst for the series of events that brought me to writing this letter. I went back to school. I discovered illustration. I found my muse. I found who I wanted to be, who I knew I was meant to be: an artist who appreciates the influence and beauty of fashion. If someone had told me five years ago that I would live in New York City as Editor-in-Chief of a small fashion publication, I would never believe it, yet I cannot imagine my daily life without it. I realize now that I never lost myself. I was simply taking a giant leap of faith toward finding my passion. NUE was born out of a deep love for the correlation between fashion and art. Richard Kalisher, our publisher, handed the project to me with the idea that street style should be a prominent factor. I asked Sarah Humphries to partner with me on this incredible journey as I knew her insight and professionalism would only serve to build a better magazine. Our intention has always been to uphold you, the reader, whose needs we feel are often disregarded in other publications. We are not trying to sell you an unachievable standard; we want to celebrate you as you are. NUE Magazine aims to bridge the gap between fashion blogging and editorial content by showcasing the nation’s best street style, fashion illustration, indie designers and intelligent think pieces. As Editor-in-Chief and Deputy Editor, Sarah and I are humbled and overwhelmed by the people who have helped make this first issue possible. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. They say print is dead; we say it’s time to start NUE. With love,

NUE JUNE 2014

CONSUMERISM AND FASHION SHALYN BAUM

ILLUSTRATION SARAH HUMPHRIES

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE 2014 HIGH FASHION RUNWAY BECOMES AISLE 4 AT THE SUPERMARKET? A TONGUE-IN-CHEEK COMMENTARY ON CONSUMER CULTURE. AT THIS YEAR'S FALL/ WINTER READY TO WEAR SHOWS, FASHION DESIGNERS USED THEIR COLLECTIONS TO PROPEL THE CONCEPT OF CONSUMERISM TO AN EXTRAVAGANT DEGREE. KARL LAGERFELD AND HIS TEAM AT CHANEL CONSTRUCTED A COMPLEX AND HYPER DETAILED CHANEL SUPERMARKET FOR THE PRESENTATION OF THE FALL COLLECTION. STYLE. COM APPROXIMATED ABOUT 100,000 PRODUCTS WERE GIVEN A HIGH FASHION MAKEOVER FOR THIS SINGULAR INTERPRETATION OF A CHANEL-MART. While winding their way through the aisles, often stopping to theatrically examine a product on the shelves, models whisked shopping bags or metal baskets comprised entirely of the infamous Chanel chain, and some even rolled wheeled, quilted shopping satchels. No detail was left unchecked no product was left unmodified. The fashion presented during the show reflected the decorative retail theme, as this is, of course, and Chanel supermarket. The classic Chanel suit became more oversized and baggy, pants were deconstructed and perforated, as were the collection’s interpretation of sweatpants and matching sweatshirts. A pervasive item included reflective leggings, which appeared under almost every look. Other significant pieces included jumpsuits, matching separates of every variety,

8

NUE JUNE 2014

and embellished outerwear. Several looks even featured oversized shorts paired with loose fitting leggings- a trend that the fashion elite may or may not follow. The context of this collection in its metropolitan supermarket setting gives it more of a commercialism theme than some of the individual pieces garner on their own. Most of the consumerist elements happen in the styling choices. The model’s donned hair pulled into a messy low ponytail, not completely unlike the ones we may see average girls sporting on their weekly grocery runs. Possibly the most controversial aspect of the collection was the footwear, yes, the footwear. Chanel is always going to have a luxurious mix of garments in the collection, but the pairing of all looks with flat shoes, sneakers no

less, fused with the casual hairstyling is what brings this Chanel girl into a modern girl’s world. Lagerfeld made a conscious choice for the models to be wearing sneakers and a beautiful sneaker/boot hybrid that could be invented by only the likes of Chanel. This was because, even for a Chanel girl, it would be ridiculous to wear heels to the grocery. Similarly, Jeremy Scott, the freshly developing creative director at Moschino, turned his Fall/Winter line into Moschino McDonalds. Scott’s consumerist inspirations for the collection manifested in a more obvious way, infusing indistinguishably into the garments. Ladylike, two-piece suits were colored Ronald McDonald red and mustard yellow. The Moschino M was redesigned to resemble the McDonalds logo. Additionally, the

accessories were inspired by the fast food giants and pop culture references that we have come to know as habitual presences in our lives. Like Chanel, this presentation also showed models walking with the brand’s shopping bags, highlighting the consumer aspect. The finale of the show contained several avant-garde dresses whose draped and ruffled shapes seemed to be inspired by that of empty candy wrappers and featured large unmistakable prints of the food products that were being imitated. The finale garment- a flowing ball gown complete with a print of nutritional product information, literally highlighted the idea of consumption, and intake. So what exactly is all of this consumerist fashion inspiration actually saying


TITLE NUE to the consumer? An interesting shift is occurring when fashion houses take their brand identities and transform them by utilizing such commonplace activity as supermarket shopping. Correspondingly displaying such recognizable iconography as fast food restaurants, and cartoon characters in their “highend” products is so obviously paradoxical. The reconstruction of subculture into high fashion concepts alters Ready To Wear to seem more accessible to the average girl. With all this talk of the concept of “normcore,” aka making normalcy fashionable, this seems almost the epitome of that idea- taking the mundane and making it a part of luxury branding. This practice also eliminates some of the elitism of runway fashion, not by making it more affordable or available to the average girl,

but by making the average girl, and the average experience, somewhat of a fashion muse. The aspiration ideal has now changed from the unreachable to the mainstream. Changes in the way luxury brands perceive daily culture is adjusting the currents of the flow of inspiration. Street fashion often gets it’s inspiration from the runway. Chanel and Moshino are both portraying a grassroots influence source, and in turn, fast fashion stores are then receiving that inspiration as a trickle down effect. Sources of inspiration are coming from the unlikely sources and then returning to the populace in intriguing and unexpected ways. So next time you see a fashionista on the street looking like a walking franchise, there’s much more at work than meets the eye.

BLOGGER SPOTLIGHT

EMILIE SOBEL

SOUL IN STILETTOS

WITH THE RISE OF SOCIAL MEDIA COMES THE RISE OF A NEW FASHION STAR: THE FASHION BLOGGER. THESE CONTEMPORARY STYLE ICONS HAVE BECOME A STAPLE IN THE INDUSTRY AS A WAY FOR BRANDS TO REACH A DIFFERENT DEMOGRAPHIC. ANYONE SEEKING ADVICE ON THE LATEST TRENDS CAN GRAB THE NEAREST MAGAZINE, BUT THERE’S AN OBVIOUS DISCONNECT BETWEEN EDITORIAL AND REALITY. CONSUMERS ARE CRAVING A MORE PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH FASHION: HOW WILL A GARMENT LOOK OFF THE RUNWAY? OR OUT OF THE STUDIO? CAN A REAL PERSON WEAR IT WITHOUT THE AID OF A 7-DAY CRASH DIET, A STYLIST, AND A LIGHTING CREW? IN STEPS THE FASHION BLOGGER, A MEDIAN BETWEEN THE ELITISM OF HIGH FASHION AND CASUAL FASHION ENTHUSIASTS. THEIR JOB IS TO TRANSLATE UNACHIEVABLE GLAMOUR INTO SOMETHING INSPIRING YET BELIEVABLE. AT THE AGE OF TWENTY-ONE, EMILIE SOBEL HAS ALREADY CONQUERED A DEGREE IN FASHION MARKETING, INTERNSHIPS AT HARPER’S BAZAAR AND SEVENTEEN, AND AN IMPRESSIVE LIST OF STYLING CREDITS. SOMEHOW SHE MANAGES TO STILL HAVE TIME TO RUN ONE OF OUR FAVORITE BLOGS: SOUL IN STILETTOS. CURRENTLY LIVING IN SAVANNAH, GA, SHE SPEAKS WITH US ABOUT HER PASSION, VISION, AND, OF COURSE, SHOES.

NUE: What inspired you to start blogging? EMILIE: I’d always loved the idea of blogging, but I was afraid of creating a blog that was just like everything else. I love collection inspiration and sharing things that I enjoy and I knew a blog would be the perfect place to do so. When I decided to purchase a domain, I began by creating a list of everything I wanted to achieve and everything I wanted to avoid. It really helped along the way! NUE: How would you describe your personal style? EMILIE: My personal style is glam meets grunge. I love wearing dark colors as long as I have a pop of fun somewhere,

like hot pink lips or a metallic accessory. A bit of edge is important to me, so incorporating motorcycle boots into my looks is something I do on a daily basis. NUE: Do you have go-to fashion blogs for wardrobe inspiration? EMILIE: I read Fashion Toast (www.fashiontoast.com) religiously. Rumi Neely is the epitome of chic and she wears the most beautiful designer clothing in a relaxed, relatable way. Her posts are always inspiring me to recreate her looks. NUE: You spend a lot of time traveling between New York, Miami, and Savannah. Does your style change depending on your surroundings?

EMILIE: My style definitely changes depending on where I am. When I’m in New York, I feel free to wear whatever I want. Being in the city gives you access to so much inspiration and my fashion sense reflects that. People seem to judge less in New York. Every one embraces their individuality and accepts who you are and what you wear. In Miami, I find myself wearing things that are more South Beach inspired. Mini skirts and crop tops are a big deal. In Savannah, I dress how I want, but the cobblestone grounds are limiting. It brings out my boot collection! NUE: You’re going for drinks with your favorite designer: who is it and what are you wearing? EMILIE: I’d have drinks with Martin Margiela. I have always been drawn to his work. Although he hasn’t been part of the design team for a while, he started a brand that’s completely unique. I’d love to hear his stories and what inspires him as an artist and as an individual. I’d wear a chic black leather midi-skirt paired with a white Hanes scoop neck and Balenciaga boots. My bag would be a classic Hermes Kelly and I’d be rocking a Celine choker. NUE: We know you’re a total nail polish addict (like us!) What are your top three summer shades? EMILIE: Sometimes I think I have a

14 NUE JUNE 2014

problem, but painting my nails is my favorite form of therapy. For summer I will be wearing a basic shade of white. It pops and looks good with any outfit. When white starts to bore me, I’m going to start wearing Essie’s “Penny Talk,” an amazing shade of metallic rose gold, or OPI’s “Jade is the new black,” a seriously awesome shade of forest green. NUE: The fashion industry is all about exclusivity with some insiders feeling that bloggers have no place at events like Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. At Nue, we highly disagree. What are your thoughts on the surge of fashion bloggers in the industry? What do you think your blog presents to readers that may be lacking from large publications? EMILIE: I think blogging is important, regardless of your industry. I do, however, believe that there is an oversaturation of bloggers. It can be difficult to stand out and stay relevant. While I do post outfit photos, I try to not make the focus of the pictures how good I look. I strive to inspire people to create outfits that they love, because what I wear is what I love. We all go to our friends for approval of certain outfits and I’d like to think that Soul in Stilettos is another friend you can go to. Something I dislike about other blogs is how expensive their garments can be. How am I supposed to compete with girls

who have 10 Chanel bags and a new Valentino every post? I can’t go home and recreate that look without feeling like I have less. Blogging shouldn’t be a competition about material items. It should be about inspiring, creating and sharing, and that’s what I think Soul in Stilettos is. NUE: If you could trade closets with anyone in the world, who would it be? EMILIE: Sarah Jessica Parker! At the risk of sounding cliché, she is an icon to me. When I was little, I saw my mom watching Sex and the City and admired the shoes and her closet. When I was finally old enough to watch the show, I stayed in my room memorizing the outfits worn. Carrie and SJP are fashion risk takers and trend-setters, and I love them for that. Fashion should be about creativity and embracing what you love. SJP is a great example of that. If heaven is real, it’s her closet!

NOWHERE IS THIS MORE APPARENT THAN WITH THE DECADENTLY VIVID SWIMWEAR BRAND, WE ARE HANDSOME. We Are Handsome has been making waves in the luxury swim market starting in 2009. Since the launch, it has become a beloved favorite of celebrities and fashionistas alike due to it’s youthful attitude and effortless designs. The brand touts it’s trendy wares as “the embodiment of a love for the beautiful things in life, the wonder of travel and the endless and abundant magic of the inspiring world in which we live.” We

have to agree. Established by husband and wife power couple Jeremy and Katinka Somers, their goal is to “construct pieces that capture the spirit and emotion of summer.” Each new collection presents a new batch of kaleidoscopic imagery on an assortment of swimwear styles. In addition to swimwear, the brand produces swim inspired Ready To Wear pieces, such as body conscious dresses and leggings in corresponding prints. We Are Handsome’s new Odyssey Rising collection is comprised of several distinct prints- seemingly to match every mood and taste. Here we have selected some of our summer favorites so everyone can embrace being handsome.

STYLE PROFILE

EDIE CHARLES SARAH HUMPHRIES PHOTOGRAPHY BY LIA CLAY

IF SOCIETAL CONVENTION WERE SOMETHING THAT EDIE CHARLES ADHERED TO, SHE WOULD CERTAINLY NOT BE THE RISING STAR THAT SHE IS TODAY. AT ONLY 21, AND STILL PURSUING AN UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE, SHE HAS ALREADY MADE A NAME FOR HERSELF. WITH A SUCCESSFUL BARNEY’S AD CAMPAIGN UNDER HER BELT, AND THE DISCOVERY OF A PASSION FOR JEWELRY DESIGN, MISS CHARLES EPITOMIZES AMBITION. CHARLES, WHOSE ARTISTIC UPBRINGING IN NYC MADE FOR AN ENRICHING CHILDHOOD, HAS FORGED INTO BOTH THE MODELING AND DESIGN WORLDS WITH A FIERY ASSURANCE; THE ASSURANCE THAT SHE KNOWS WHO SHE IS, AND IS COMFORTABLE IN HER OWN SKIN. NUE MAGAZINE OBTAINED A THRILLING INSIGHT INTO THE WOMAN WITH A FASCINATING JOURNEY. CHARLES SHARES WITH US WHY SEEKING OPPORTUNITIES, NEVER MAKING GENDER ASSUMPTIONS, AND EMBRACING THE JOURNEY ARE THE KEYS TO SUCCESS AND A BRIGHT FUTURE. NUE: Can you tell us a little about yourself and your background? Where are you from? EDIE: I grew up in New York City’s Greenwich Village. Growing up in such a diverse and creative environment has definitely informed my style. My family was always very supportive of my artistic endeavors. My grandma was a modern art dealer and my mom worked in fashion and then interior design so my interest in the arts came as no surprise. When I was younger I did a lot of musical theatre, but I fell out of love with performing as I got older. I always loved art and design and began taking silversmithing classes when I

24 NUE JUNE 2014

was 14. When I graduated high school I moved to London to pursue a degree in Jewelry Design at Central Saint Martins. NUE: We are so enamored with your journey and your career. How did you get into modeling? Is it something you want to continue into the future? EDIE: When I moved to London I began living full time as a woman. Modeling came shortly after. I had done some modeling for photographer friends in New York but it was always very casual, usually impromptu outdoor shoots. It was always sort of ethereal and very androgynous. When I

got to Central Saint Martins people started approaching me for various modeling jobs and in my second year I was scouted for the Meadham Kirchhoff AW13 show at London Fashion Week. I guess that’s what really got me involved with modeling. I was completely captivated by the glamour and excitement. I would love to continue modeling but I’m trying to focus on my jewelry at the moment. NUE: We know that you are also a jewelry designer, what’s your design philosophy? What is your creative process like? EDIE: My design process is very intuitive. I design for myself and so my designs are the epitome of my aesthetic. I draw a lot of inspiration from materials. My current collection features wood, silver and resin in designs that combine 3D prototyping technology with traditional making techniques. The resulting pieces are classic yet modern. I also look to tribal and Art Deco design. I aim to create effortless statement pieces that give a sense of a well-travelled wearer. NUE: Is there a person inspires you? Do you have a muse? A hero? EDIE: I have discovered my

mother to be my biggest inspiration. She always seems to have a handle on the situation. As I get older I begin to see the ways in which we are so alike, which only seams to emphasize our difference. I admire her proactivity and determination. She’s always very organized and prepared. I try to emulate these characteristics to the best of my abilities. NUE: Have you experienced a moment that you could call a “big break” or a “defining moment” for you and your career? What was it? EDIE: I was recently featured in the Barneys New York Spring Campaign, shot by the incredible Bruce Weber. Through the campaign I signed with my current agency in London, Profile Model Management. The campaign, titled Brothers, Sisters, Sons and Daughters featured exclusively transgender models and their support networks of family and friends. The campaign increased trans awareness and exposed the humanity of our stories. The magnitude of this experience as a model and transgender woman has deeply affected me. Meeting other young transgender people who are confident and ambitious really inspired me to make a success of myself.


TITLE NUE

NUE: In an interview with Elle Magazine, you stated that, as a transgender model, “The biggest struggle I face is appropriate use of language.” Can you explain a bit about this struggle? How would you like to see it resolved? EDIE: For transgender people in general, correct pronouns continues to be an issue. I find the best approach is to be upfront about your preferred name and pronouns but that is not always an option. I try

not to take it personally if people get confused and it’s important to be assertive and correct people if they are making you uncomfortable. It can be awkward but I feel it is important as an out transgender individual to help inform people about proper use of language. So many of these language issues could be resolved if people were more sensitive to variations in gender presentation. Remember that gender identity is self-determined. A safe option is usually to

address people according to how they present their gender and not how you perceive it to be. If you are unsure, ask for clarification. Never make assumptions. NUE: What’s the biggest challenge currently for you? In terms of career, creatively, or other? EDIE: Currently my biggest challenge is deciding what to do next. As I finish my studies in London, I’m preparing to move back to NYC in the fall. From there

I’m still deciding how to move forward. My dream would be to start my own jewelry company but I would also like to intern for a while to get a better sense of the industry. I would like to continue with modeling and maybe acting as well. I’m trying to embrace as many opportunities as I can. NUE: You have an amazing fashion sense. Describe your sense of style. Are there certain pieces or aesthetics you constantly gravitate

NUE JUNE 2014

25


towards? EDIE: I have an eclectic sense of style. My wardrobe is a bit classic, but also sort of bohemian. I have a lot of interesting pieces I’ve inherited from my Grandma so I would say it’s also a bit Grandma-chic. I have an assortment of pieces that are potentially hideous by some standards but I enjoy the styling challenge. I love layers and a combination of textures. My favorite pieces are unique yet timeless like a chunky cardigan but with an unusual silhouette. I love finding those pieces that are so perfectly obvious but totally unique. I tend to go through phases with certain signature garments. My day to day is more androgynous and understated with loads of jewelry but I am no stranger to super feminine statement pieces. I have my fair share of crop tops and tiny dresses. I try to strike a balance of hard and soft, masculine and feminine, cheap and expensive.

26 NUE JUNE 2014

NUE: What are some of your hobbies, talents, or passions? EDIE: I love to sing. I did a lot of voice over work growing up and I had so much fun. Since moving to London I’ve abandoned singing but I’d love to get back to it soon. There are so many songs I would have loved to sing in high school but at the time I felt very limited by my gender and sexuality. Now that I feel confidant in my gender identity I’m excited to rediscover my voice again. NUE: Do you have any exciting projects coming up? What are you looking forward to in the rest of 2014 and into 2015? EDIE: I’m finishing my first jewelry collection at the moment. I will launch the lookbook images on my website (ediecharles.com) in June and I hope to start selling in the near future. NUE: In a perfect world, what would you be doing in

ten years? EDIE: In ten years I hope to be running my own jewelry line, maybe freelance designing for other companies as well. In a perfect world, I could definitely see myself as a jewelry editor for a fashion magazine. NUE: You are such an inspiration for everyone who has ever felt the need to explore identity. What advice do you have for people, young and old, who are struggling to find their identity or feel comfortable with themselves? EDIE: My advice is to be open to experimentation. Find your own unique happiness and don’t get caught up in some preconceived idea of how you should or could be. Appreciate that finding ones self is an ongoing process so embrace the journey and let your differences empower you.

ART IN FASHION SARAH HUMPHRIES

Fashion serves many functions, as does art. Wearers, viewers, and experiencers have a unique connection with a piece- be it a garment or a portrait. As art is a true medicinal balm of the soul, fashion works in a kindred manner. In a screen test with The New York Times, Alber Elbaz, fashion designer and artistic director of Lanvin in Paris discusses how fashion, like art, can be emotional and healing: “I don’t have to give you a Tylenol to feel good, I’ll give you, maybe, a red dress

and you’ll feel marvelous.” There is a magical process when a designer becomes intensely moved by a specific work and in turn, subsequent interpretations become born from this exact idea or body or work. It’s a beautiful growth, multiplication process when artistic endeavors bear further artistic inventiveness. Designers more often than not begin a collection by gaining inspiration from a work that strikes them deeply. Successively, color schemes, print inspirations, and the

THERE’S NO QUESTION THAT ART AND FASHION ARE INCONTROVERTIBLY AND INEXTRICABLY LINKED. UNDENIABLE ARTISTS IN THEIR OWN RIGHT, FASHION DESIGNERS WEAVE COMPLEX AND INTRICATE ARTWORKS IN EVERY SINGLE COLLECTION. THE SAME ELEMENTS ARE CONSIDERED WHEN A FASHION DESIGNER DESIGNS AS WHEN AN ARTIST CREATES. THE PRINCIPLES OF LINE, SHAPE, DIRECTION, SIZE, TEXTURE, COLOR, BALANCE, REPETITION, DOMINANCE, UNITY ETC.

very designs themselves evolve and develop from the initial creative source. One of our favorite collections that wonderfully infused art culture into the fashion landscape was Prabal Gurung with his Fall/ Winter 2014 Collection. Gurung partnered with the extraordinary expressionist artist, Cecily Brown. Utilizing the artist’s paintings as a conceptual foundation, a host of new and innovative ideas can be found hidden inside the collection’s garments. Brown’s artwork was used

for print inspirations but also spawned innovative brushstroke embroideries. Woven brocades complete with flourishes and textures looked as beautiful on the body as on the canvas. Gurung’s collection is only one of many that demonstrate what sublime discoveries have been made between artists and designers, and the possibilities of so much influence to come.

THE MAKERS OF OUR GENERATION

yOunG & ABLe

LAUREL NEWPORT INTERVIEWS BY JENNIFER WANG PRIOR TO FOUNDING YOUNG & ABLE, AN ONLINE BOUTIQUE THAT DOUBLES AS A PLATFORM FOR EMERGING INDEPENDENT DESIGNERS, ROSA NG MOVED FROM HER NATIVE CALIFORNIA TO NEW YORK CITY TO ATTEND THE FASHION INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY. SINCE THEN SHE HAS WORKED WITH BOTH DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL BRANDS SUCH AS ALEXANDER MCQUEEN, JASON WU, LOUIS GOLDEN, KATE SPADE, AND CALVIN KLEIN. SHE HAS ALSO WORKED WITH THE SAVE THE GARMENT CENTER ORGANIZATION, THE MISSION OF WHICH IS TO PROTECT AND PROMOTE NEW YORK CITY’S LOCAL FASHION MANUFACTURERS. In founding Young & Able, Rosa has brought to light a more conscious kind of consumerism. With an emphasis on sustainability, locally sourced materials, local manufacturing, and transparent practices, Y&A provides consumers with access to quality products— from a full range of both men and women’s clothing, to accessories, to books and gifts. But more than just the product, you are getting the full story. With access to interviews of each of the designers featured on Y&A, you can learn where each designer is from, what led them to New York, what inspires them. Each interview includes a photograph of the designer, allowing you

34 NUE JUNE 2014

to put a face with a name. Through behind-the-scenes photos and video clips, you can also glean insights in to their design and creation processes. NUE: Tell us how Young & Able began? How did the business come into being? ROSA: I have been freelancing in the fashion industry since junior year of College and I’ve reached a point in my career where I wanted something different and more challenging. I took a block-printing workshop in India last March with local artisans and was really inspired by my experience. I walked away knowing that I needed to get back into creating something of

my own. I thought my own brand of knitwear would be the project that will fulfill my creative need but the more I thought about the industry and evaluated the companies that my friends have started after college, it occurred to me that a platform like Young & Able is more beneficial to the community where we can collectively help promote each other. NUE: Why is it important to have a platform where consumers can reach designers in a very direct way? Why is independent design important? ROSA: It’s a saturated field and without platforms like Young & Able, it’s difficult for designers to reach

outside their own network or vice versa for consumers to discover something new and different. A lot of people comment on the way I curate the shop and I think that’s an example of why independent design is important. We all have something to say and we interpret the world so differently. Other shops might have a few of the same designers that I carry, but as a brand, Young & Able will be unique because of how I curate and present these brands next to each other. NUE: Are all of the products on Young & Able made in the USA? ROSA: At Young & Able, we like to support all emerging designers domestically and


TITLE NUE internationally. We are based in New York, so naturally we started with our own community of designers. Most of our US-based designers do produce in the USA with a few exceptions depending on the type of goods that they are creating. The products in the shop are made by hand on a small scale with either locally sourced materials or a method of sustainability in mind.

NUE: How do you make your designer selections? Do you have specific criteria for which designers you select? ROSA: I curate the site and therefore a lot of it is based off my own aesthetic and my standard of quality. I try to meet with all the designers that I work with and hear their mission and brand’s story. Aside from having a great product, the working relationship between the designers and me is

important and sometimes you just don’t know if it’s a good fit until you bring a designer on board for a season. NUE: What are your hopes for Young & Able for the future? Where do you see the company in 5 years? ROSA: I try not to think too far in advance especially in the fashion world when everything changes and evolves so quickly. One of

the goals that we have this year is to test out different offline experiences to engage with our customers. So far we have hosted a small pop-up shop in January, a meet and greet with 8 feature designers and currently planning something for the holiday season. We also would like to launch a collection through the shop sometime in the near future.

WITH Y&A, ROSA HAS WORKED TO CREATE A COMMUNITY WHERE DESIGNERS AND CONSUMERS CAN CONNECT AT EVERY LEVEL; THAT A DESIGNER AND THEIR STORY BECOME TANGIBLE FOR THE CONSUMER IS VITAL, AS WITH EMERGING INDEPENDENT DESIGNERS SUCH AS ANN YEE, DIRTY LIBRARIAN CHAINS, RICHARDS, AND JESSICA VELEZ, THE CONSUMER IS NOT JUST BUYING A PRODUCT, THEY ARE SUPPORTING THE DESIGNER’S FUTURE WITHIN THE INDUSTRY.

ANN YEE Detroit-born designer Ann Yee has now established both herself and her business in New York City. Influenced by city life and designing with “the modern nomad” in mind, Ann Yee creates clothing meant to transition with ease between seasons, as well as between urban environments. This “chic ease,” that she advocates both in her personal style as well as her design aesthetic, is achieved through an emphasis on texture and layering, and the smart sourcing of textiles such as cashmere blends, structured tweeds, and felted wool, which lend themselves not only to luxury but to utility. Slouchy knits are complimented by more structured pieces, such as tailored jackets and cropped trousers, offering interesting takes on line and proportion.

But, at the end of the day, it is her beautiful sweaters that steal the show; and with a background in knitwear, it feels both organic and sensible, that Ann Yee’s knits have become her signature. WANG: What was the driving force behind starting your own collection? YEE: I’ve always loved clothes and designing. I remember drawing figures in grade school and making dresses for my barbies out of tissues! My parents have their own business so I definitely got the entrepreneurial bug from them. With their encouragement, advice, and support, I was able to start my own business. WANG: Your current collection is based around knitwear. Why the interest

in knitwear? Do you believe this will be your signature in fashion? YEE: I’m drawn to knitwear because of all the textures. I love experimenting with different yarns and stitches the possibilities are endless. It has become my signature, but in an organic way. I actually started the line with mostly woven pieces, but I slowly started adding more sweater pieces to the mix and the feedback was positive. Now the collection has evolved into a knit-centric line, which I’m proud of. I’m all about comfort and layering so sweaters are key players in my personal style especially when the

temperatures drop! WANG: How did you decide to become involved with Young & Able? What does the mission mean to you as a designer? YEE: There are so many emerging designers on the scene right now so platforms like Young & Able’s are extremely helpful. It’s nice to have consumers get a behind the scenes taste of what actually goes into producing a collection. This helps to create a better connection between designers and customers, which is great.

DIRTY LIBRARIAN CHAINS Susan Domelsmith was once referred to as the “Dirty Librarian” because of her cat eye glasses, vintage blouses, and hair styled in a bun. Susan is now the designer and maker behind the jewelry line known as Dirty Librarian Chains, and offers support to libraries and literacy programs through frequent charity work and fundraising efforts. Dirty Librarian Chains is approaching its 10-year anniversary, and Susan stays true to the zero waste design model upon which the line was founded. Taking seasonal road trips across the country, Susan visits old jewelry factories that are no longer in operation, rescuing vintage chains and jewelry components. In her shared Williamsburg studio, she up-cycles these found objects

in to necklaces, earrings, and bracelets, creating statement pieces as well as more simple, every day pieces—all of which are influenced by the juxtaposition of old and new. Dirty Librarian Chains has become well revered in the world of sustainable fashion, and has earned features in notable publications such as British Vogue, Elle, New York Magazine, The Huffington Post, WWD, and Teen Vogue. Furthermore, Susan’s designs have adorned an impressive list of celebrity clientele, including Jessica Alba, Anne Hathaway, Debbie Harry, and Gwyneth Paltrow.

RICHARDS Sarah Leslie Richards is a native of New York City. She earned her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), and has worked with a wide range of established brands in New York such as Proenza Schouler, Diane Von Furstenberg, Peter Som, Opening Ceremony, Doo.Ri, and Tory Burch. Deciding to found her own company in 2012, Sarah launched her eponymous line, Richards, with a Spring/ Summer 13 collection. With technology and the Internet acting as major influencers, Sarah is driven to explore and experiment with the

36 NUE JUNE 2014

possibilities of print design and digital technology. She custom designs her prints focusing on the use of color and pattern, playing with the idea of creating an optical illusion for the viewer. In this way, her garments become works of wearable art. The garments themselves, which Sarah strives to manufacture locally, incorporate classic silhouettes with subtle changes to proportion and detail, allowing the garments to be unique in their own right while also serving as a blank canvas for her prints. With an affinity for simple shapes and interesting


TITLE NUE textiles, Sarah hopes to convey through Richards the same sense of fun and light heartedness she embodies in her personal style. WANG: What is your background? Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got into designing? RICHARDS: Around age 6 I decided that I wanted to design clothing, somehow I have not wavered from that goal all these years! I started interning at fashion studios in high school and I studied apparel and textiles at RISD. WANG: When did you launch Richards NYC? What led you to designing your

own line? RICHARDS: I launched the line in Fall 2012. I was working in the fashion industry freelance at the time (which I still do), but was unsatisfied working only on the vision of others. I was still very excited about the ideas I had begin exploring in my thesis, so the line is a way to let those ideas manifest in a form that would be accessible to share with people. WANG: How is the line a reflection of your personal style? RICHARDS: The line reflects my personal taste for simple shapes that showcase really

interesting textiles. There is also a sense of fun and lightheartedness in my style that I hope comes across in the clothes. WANG: What are some of your most memorable moments as a designer? RICHARDS: The prints in my Fall/Winter 2014 collection developed from a variety of sources. I was looking at prismatic banding on pixelated images of text, optical illusions enhanced by screen structure and 3D modeling. I don’t tend to have a theme, but these were some of the things I was looking into.

WANG: What do you like most about living and working in NYC? RICHARDS: NYC is my home, I honestly can’t even imagine working somewhere else. The local manufacturers in the garment district are highly skilled and luckily happy to work with very small designers. They are an invaluable resource that you can’t find anywhere else in the US.

JESSICA VELEZ Jessica Velez grew up in Glassboro, New Jersey, with eyes and aspirations fixed on the sparkling skyline of New York City. She made her move in 2007 and enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). During her time at FIT, she had the unique experience of earning her Associate’s Degree through a joint program with the esteemed Polimoda in Florence, Italy. While in New York, she was also able to glean invaluable insights outside of the classroom in her experiences working within prominent fashion houses such as Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs, and Rebecca Taylor. Upon graduating in 2011, Jessica founded her company, Jessica Velez Knitwear, the draw to knitwear stemming from her desire to develop and create her own textiles. This interest

in textile development, combined with her interests in travel, and foreign design practices, led Jessica to her ancestral country of Colombia. Here she spent ten days connecting with a group of skilled artisans, an experience that manifests itself in various pieces of her Spring 14 collection. Inspired by the dedication and talent for hand craftsmanship, and simultaneously saddened by the lack of jobs and value for these women within their community, Jessica will continue collaborating with these women for future collections.
