Getting to Know our Designers :: Cushnie et Ochs

Two Parsons grads, Michelle Ochs and Carly Cushnie, teamed together upon graduating in 2008 
to form Cushnie et Ochs. Starting with less than $100,000 to start their line, Cushnie and Ochs received critical acclaim for their first runway show and were instantly picked up by Bergdorf's in New York. Nine collections later, Cushnie et Ochs has become available in high end boutiques and department stores all over the globe.
Focusing on the beauty of the female form, Ochs and Cushnie combine brain power to create edgy, urban looks that celebrate femininity, minimalism, and sexiness.
Their emphasis on clean lines and saturated colors have made them two of the most sought after designers for celebrities like Kate Bosworth and Diane Kruger, and public figures like Michelle Obama.
The two 28 year old designers are taking the fashion world by storm with their clean aesthetic and
individual personalities.
With its sharp lines, sexy cut outs, and bold bright colors, we can't help but fall in love with Cushnie et Ochs Resort 2013 collection.
Check below for a video link to see the inspiration behind their Spring 2013 collection
and shop the Cushnie et Ochs resort (in store now) and spring collections (coming soon)

Getting to Know our Designers :: Suno

New York based designer Max Osterweis began his label Suno in 2008 after riots and a damaged economy arose post election in his second home town of Kenya. 
Using traditional Kenyan fabrics that Osterweis had been collecting for years, Max collaborated with designer Erin Beatty to create a small collection predominately produced in Kenya. 
Suno now produces in Kenya, Peru, New York and India, and combines both high end tailoring and traditional techniques and fabrics to create quirky, unique pieces that reflect Osterweis's upbringing in his beloved Kenya. 
Suno provides a refreshing look at fashion with its use of bold prints, eclectic silhouettes, and playful color palettes.
This luxury line has been called one of the most "colorful and optimistic" labels of recent times, with its playful attitude and passion to support the Kenyan textile industry as well as American production. 
We are in love with Suno's new Resort collection, featuring bright florals and dreamy pastels.
Stop by McMullen to shop the Suno resort collection.
Suno resort collection available in store only.
Stop by McMullen Grand Ave. location to shop Suno
