MICHEL i·con·o·clast /īˈkänəˌklast/
1. A person who attacks cherished beliefs or institutions. “Murcielago Roadsters, fêtes en France, and bespoke suits. Visions this refined make graduating from Parsons look like a walk in the park. Whitney Michel will tell you it is – at least when you’re living out your dreams. Michel is on the cusp of launching a highly covetable lifestyle brand for the charismatic jet setter that properly bears her name. But don’t be fooled, this recent graduate is far from your average design rookie.” Raised as the only girl in a first generation American home with four brothers, Whitney Michel had an early lesson of understanding masculinity. At the age of 18, Michel moved to New York City, with her long time interest in fashion to attend the prestigious Parsons School of Design. During her junior year in 2009, she began her journey of developing the MICHEL MEN concept, interviewing some of the most influential men in the world, studying their interests and ambitions. Upon graduation, with the support of major industry insiders, Michel went on to launch MICHEL MEN, a brand dedicated to serving the remarkable men who ‘make the world turn.’
In 2011, Michel went on to hone her skills in the Menswear Department at VOGUE.
