Study NY is an ethical contemporary womenswear brand- the creation of Tara St James, a Canadian born and NY-based with extensive expertise background in menswear tailoring, the denim industry, and eco-friendly lines. The start of Study NY in 2009 focused and continues to focus on no-waste pattern-making and open sourcing materials. Sustainable and ethical design is at the core of this label: Study NY produces seasonless clothing using sustainably sourced materials through ethical production. In 2011 the label was awarded the prestigious Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Grant for sustainable design.
"The hands that manipulate the materials are just as important as the quality and sustainability of those materials. "
