NANA JUDY’s spring/summer ’19 collection, presented at Spring Studios for New York Fashion Week, was inspired by the confident, carefree attitude of the young and free. This designer’s collection received wonderful applause as each model stepped down the runway. The brand continues to push forward with new styles, bold patterns, colors and high-fashioned styles. Developed for the worldly streets and designed for the progressive man and woman, NANA JUDY evolves with each individual piece as a growing brand. Their fabrics are soft, luxurious. Often, their materials are one-of-a kind in prints and patterns. Dynamic details enhance NANA JUDY’s unique designs, providing their clients with something newsworthy. Their look is eye-catching, yet directional in style.
Overall, they blend high-quality craftsmanship with an underground edge. Consumers look at the brand for its clever cuts in apparel and denim. From the looks in this collection, you notice the expert tailoring and creativity. NANA JUDY has a clean aesthetic with a strong focus on design features, trims and finishes. Distinctive product and innovation has created a loyal following. However, it’s the culture that drives the brand’s world, immersed in art, travel and music.
Established in 2006, NANA JUDY is a global brand, stemming from Melbourne, Australia. Their collection is filled with timeless pieces. For men and women, NANA JUDY is always at the forefront of fashion. The company is named after a Dalmatian puppy named Judy, owned by the designer’s great grandmother. In the ’60s and ’70s, she was a seamstress and designer for the famous folks of the era.
At the company called STAUD, the goal is no nonsense, high style. “We want to create a line of modern classics, refined pieces that reflect both an eye toward the future and a nostalgia for old school elegance,” says the company’s mission statement. With clean, feminine lines, flattering cuts and only the finest materials, STAUD’s styles are designed without ever sacrificing quality or creativity. The brand’s intent is to design sophisticated, attainable clothing and accessories. Each piece is meant to elevate and enhance a woman’s look. Their clothes are paired perfectly with everything from a comfortable pair of sneakers, to a treasured dress shoe.
