About Narcissus New York
Narcissus New York is a women's young designer label by me, Meredith Robinson. Based out of Brooklyn, NY and made entirely in New York City's Garment District, my line offers a collection of wearable luxury separates adorned with quirky yet feminine details. With its name derived from the Greek myth, Narcissus' mission is to inspire our customer to love herself more deeply through her wardrobe.
About The Designer
A graduate of Pratt Institute's fashion design program and a current LIM fashion MBA student, I am a Southern belle born and raised in Memphis, TN. I have been designing clothes ever since I could hold a crayon. My design philosophy is simple: fit and femininity. For the SS2013 collection, each sample is thoroughly patterned and fit to our fit model ensuring the utmost satisfaction for our wearer.
The Narcissus Woman
"I design with not only myself in mind, but also for all of the stylish women that I know. I think we as women deserve a collection that provides wearable investment pieces that coordinate with both work and play."
Narcissus was created for the woman who derives inspiration through her wardrobe. Fashion-conscious yet classic, the Narcissus woman desires unique investment pieces that are appropriate for a day at the office or a night on the town. She is independent, motivated, and inspires those around her. Above all, she is truly in love herself (but in a good way!)
The Spring/Summer 2013 Collection
Inspired by my magnolia roots and love of old films, movies, and art, the Spring/Summer 2013 collection takes a page from the Alfred Hitchcock classic “North by Northwest,” the Spring/Summer 2013 tells the story of a case of mistaken identity through the jungles of Mexico. Juxtaposing surrealist touches with 1950’s tailoring, Narcissus redefines a new classic through elegant eccentricity with its inaugural collection.
Why I Need Your Support
During the course of this summer, I have been working diligently with a team of pattern makers, sample makers, and other creative individuals to create a remarkable Spring/Summer collection.
With the initial support of friends and family, I have produce patterns and conduct fitting sessions, however, to make this collection a reality, I need backing for samples and press. With your pledge, Narcissus will be able to do the following for the Spring/Summer 2013 collection:
- Samples - will be photographed and lent out for press and sales purposes.
- Look Book & Press Materials
- October Trunk Show in Memphis, TN - an amazing opportunity for our customers to make pre-sale orders for the SS2013 Collection, which will hit stores in late January.
What's In It for You?
Of course, you want to know what your support will earn you. Depending on the amount of your donation, you could receive a number of gifts ranging from original fashion illustration prints to acrylic paintings by yours truly.
