How I'm Making It: Susanne Ostwald and Ingvar Helgason of Ostwald Helgason
New York Fashion Week nights at Milk Studios have become legendary not only for the crowds, but for the new talent they unleash onto the New York fashion week scene. The breakout star of the fall 2012 was Ostwald Helgason, founded by Susanne Ostwald and Ingvar Helgason. The designers hail from places off the mainstream fashion map (Leipzig, Germany and Reykjavik, Iceland), but came together in London to launch their epynomous line in 2008. Fans of their unexpected silhouettes, dynamic stripes and color combination, and comfy knits include Moda Operandi, Susie Lau, and us, so we grilled the duo about their spike to success and how they are "making it" in fashion today.
