I caught up with designer Marcia Patmos at the presentation and was able to pick her creative brain about the collection.
You were inspired by contemporary artist Mary Judge for your Spring 2012 line. Have you always been a fan of her work?
I’ve been following her work for a couple of years. She was showing at a Brooklyn gallery near my house, and I’ve been inspired by her ever since I saw it there.
You use a lot of sustainable production methods and knit of locally stocked yarn. What’s important to you about this Eco-friendly way of running your business?
It’s important to take some responsibility and find a way to give back, and I’m doing that with M.Patmos. I try to be sustainable and local wherever I can. I also have a reversible garment in the Spring collection; you’re using less fabric because it’s two outfits in one. I like to think of it as “slow fashion.”
