Showing Today | Cushnie et Ochs
Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs are the young designers behind the label Cushnie et Ochs. The duo formed their company in 2008 upon graduating from Parsons New School for Design. Since their first runway show for Spring 2009, the designers have received critical acclaim in the press; they subsequently sold their Spring 09 collection exclusively to Bergdorf Goodman in New York. To date, the brand has received international press and sales recognition and was honored with the Ecco Domani Fashion Fund award in 2009. Both Cushnie and Ochs share a love of art, architecture, and the female form. Together the team benefits from the ever-shifting, intellectual dualities of their collaboration. The Cushnie et Ochs woman is strong, confident, and finds beauty in all things sleek and minimalist. Flawless execution, alluring energy, and bold sensuality set the foundation for the Cushnie et Ochs line.
