Most recently known as Co-Founder for one of today’s most trendiest fashion houses, Cushnie et Ochs and one of the 2011 finalists for the CFDA and Vogue’s Fashion Fund. Former intern for some of the biggest names in fashion. Such as: Proenza Schouler, Donna Karen and Oscar de la Renta, Carly Cushnie is more than leaving her mark in one of the most competitive industries in the world.
To fashionistas, finding a great designer to fit your own personal style can be tedious. As the trends evolve and the need for new designers to create an expression that matches the powerful and sexy tone in women today, it leaves me with one question… is a designer like, Carly Cushnie, what we have been waiting for?
The fact that she interned at Donna Karen, does not surprise me. Immediately, after looking at her pictures and collections, there is an essence about her that seems to remind me of Donna. Her edgy, rock star, girl next door flair brings the line alive; making her a perfect match for Michelle Ochs to form the one of the fastest growing Fashion Houses based in New York City.
