I am a designer, artist, and musician who lives in New York City. Art and music were always a part of my life growing up, and while at Harvard College, where I graduated with BA in Visual and Environmental Studies, I continued in these pursuits. College was also where I became more active in fashion, and in the summers I interned at Marc Jacobs in New York and Christian Dior in Paris. After college, I worked at Proenza Schouler before returning to Paris to study at the Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale. I was offered a job as an assistant designer at Rochas under Olivier Theyskens which fell through when the house closed, so I returned to New York. Soon after, I launched my own contemporary line, called Graey.
I started this blog to document my career in fashion as a resource for others interested in pursuing fashion, as I get requests from time to time from people wanting to know how to get into the industry. The blog has also become a repository for other random things on my mind.
I still occasionally get e-mails asking for more information on how to get an internship or the Chambre Syndicale. Unfortunately, I am not able to offer more help than what is already on my blog.
I do custom clothing work, as well as web design. You can contact me about both by clicking here.
