Please join us for the interactive launch of RITE OF PASSAGE.

RITE OF PASSAGE is a collection built to symbolize the elegance and sophistication of American made textiles and the meaningful role clothing holds in our individual archive. The intimate relationship our bodies have with the textiles that adorn us empower the garments we wear to reflect and effect our psyche and identity.
