1. You meet with every buyer, editor and photographer individually during fashion week, allowing us to examine each piece from your collection, one by one. And you don’t rush us. (Word of advice for emerging designers: If you want to make money, this is the way to do it. You need to sell your product, not a spectacle.)
2. You create clothes that people actually want to wear! With your focus on classic American sportswear, not trends, you’ve put together a collection of sharp separates, from a poppy-colored leather skirt and matching crop top to a oatmeal wool wrap dress that doubles as a jacket. We love that you call it “beatnik ballerina” because it includes lots of black turtlenecks and calf-length skirts.
3. You have one model in your studio at every appointment, ready to try on any item so that we can see what the clothes look like on a body, not just a hanger.
4. You understand that not all editors are great photographers, and thus have a disc of beautiful images ready for us when we arrive to view your collection. Thank you!
