Cushnie et Ochs - New York Fall 2009
(NEW YORK) Parsons alums Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs of Cushnie et Ochs may be young, but they’ve already generated plenty of buzz: in the girls’ second-ever Fashion Week presentation, they drew the likes of Linda Fargo, Steven Kolb and Cathy Horyn to their front row. Their modern, streamlined collection did not disappoint. “We used very classical, sculptural elements, mixed with razor-sharp, sort of mechanical elements,” said Cushnie post-show. “We were looking at assembly lines and mass production.” Some pieces, like a funnel-neck coat and a tux, had a Jil Sander-esque quality, but the girls stood out with young details like cutouts, sheer panels, and plenty of asymmetry.
