Sass Brown is a full-time professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, and lives in Florence, Italy, where she is Resident Director for its overseas programme. She has created collections for myriad manufacturers, from urban clothing for London’s trend conscious teenagers, to her own signature collection of women’s designer sportswear. She specializes in ethical design practices in the fashion industry and has worked with many women’s cooperatives, most notably in Latin America.
Ahhhh, Sass Brown…so much has been written about this incredible woman…therefore it is difficult to find (original) words to express just how grateful we are to have Sass Brown representing all designers, especially Eco designers. ..and just how lucky we felt to have been written about in her blog, Eco Fashion Talk:
Although we have her book on our desk in the studio and reference often, we have not had the honor of meeting Sass face-to-face. However, we feel her warmth and passion from her writings…there is no one quite like her. You can imagine our delight/surprise when, after she received “Alexander” from us, she proceeded to take him on tour with her. In the spirit of “Amelie”’s gnome, we get to live vicariously through Alexander. Sass places Alexander on her finger and takes photographs of them together in front of landmarks throughout the world.
“Alexander” is our tribute to Lee McQueen, A Sterling Silver Ring with an Acrylic Image painted inside of a Gothic Sterling Silver Frame.
Welcome to the travels of Sass & Alexander:
