Update #5

Designer Spotlight: Lilah Horwitz

Comment

Each new day brings exciting new collaborations to Here Now! Today we highlight an artist and fashion designer who will be showcasing her awesome designs in New York with us this spring. 

Here Now: Lilah Horwitz

Q. Who are you, where are you from and what do you make?
A.
I am simply out to compose a better world. I was born in NYC raised in Seattle, then educated in NYC. I make site specific collections of one of a kind clothing.

Q. What work are you presenting at HERE NOW?
A.
Select garments from the NYC collection and the West Virginia Collection.

Q. Why are you a part of HERE NOW? Who brought you to it?
A.
I met Alexa Stark at Parsons, and our like-mindedness has kept us in touch since.

Q. What does this project mean to you? Have you ever done anything like this before?
A.
This project is the future of retail! It is most important that we keep a public dialogue and action discussing making and consuming, the powers and potential of creativity and consumerism. In May 2012 I put on a one day pop-up shop in NYC where I sold garments from the New York collection.

Q.What do you hope to gain from being involved in this project? Who are you excited to know better after this?
A.
I hope to grow in my ideas and creations by being inspired and learning from the others involved and the course the project take. Everyone!
