(New York) When Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs competed against each other for Parsons Designer of the Year, the jury could not choose between these two. "We had them tied," recalls Linda Fargo. "And it’s incredible to see them do so well together." That result in fact bonded the two talents and with their third formal collection they’ve showcased a clear potential to enter the big leagues. "Peter Zimmermann was our foundation," they said. "We were really inspired by organic lines and shapes. Our collection is always a balance between hard and soft, but always clean." Well, that and inescapably sensual. The duo dabbled with color for the first time but stuck to their signature strategic cuts, peeks, and skin boundaries. Their models looks possessed with clear uninhibited confidence.
