*Read my article on independent designers at the fashion spot*
Today I'd like to introduce a very special designer and his label. Cody Ross, of Priestess NYC, is a relative newcomer to the fashion scene yet has already dressed the likes of Leigh Lezark of the MisShapes, Tyra Banks, Juliette Lewis of Juliette and the Licks, and Greta Cavazzoni. The London School of Economics grad takes cues from avant-garde art and vintage punk to create clean-cut looks that are all his own. What I like about Ross's designs are their versatility. They are very much wearable yet invoke both elegance and sophistication, the true mark of city girls. The clothes also integrate just the right amounts of color, pattern, and dramatic cuts to produce simplistic and regal looks.(Please click on the images to view a larger size)
Priestess NYC is classy yet hip and fresh, and one of my favorite pieces involves a mickey mouse pattern that is very reminiscent of Jeremy Scott. The upscale boutiques that carry Priestess NYC are testaments to its high quality creations. Ross's designs are available at stores like Colette in Paris, D-Mop in Hong Kong, Podium, TG-170 in New York, Lane Crawford, Barneys New York, Sucre, and Shine. The atelier/showroom is located in the West Village in New York City at West 4th and West 11th. Check out their myspace @ myspace.com/priestessnyc.
