Dress to Impress :: Jenny Gordy

Jenny Gordy has been named one of the best young designers under thirty by her own mother. She studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and now has a clothing line called Wiksten. “
(in Stitch, Winter 2008, p. 78)
O estilo Wiksten é muito século XXI. Linhas depuradas, tecidos sóbrios e silhuetas soltas, com laivos de inspiração dos anos 60. A Jenny é uma verdadeira one-woman show: é ela quem faz tudo, desde comprar tecidos de grande qualidade, a desenhar os moldes, coser as peças de roupa, fotografá-las e pô-las à venda na sua própria loja online. É um dos grandes expoentes de uma nova geração de estilistas indie.
Wiksten style is very 21st century. Clean lines, sober fabrics and loose shapes, with dashes of inspiration from the 60’s. Jenny is a true one-woman show: she does everything helself, from buying high-quality fabrics, to making the patterns, sewing the garments, photographing the finished clothes and putting them for sale on her own online shop. She is one of the stars of a new indie designers generation.
