The new series of Garmento talks kick of this Thursday with Rachel Comey.
Since launching her label in 2001, Rachel Comey has steadily endeared herself to women the world over who share her sure sense of self and her impeccable taste. Eschewing trends and flavors of the moment, her clothes are best seen not on the runway nor in a fashion editorial, but in the wardrobes and on the backs of real women, where her subtle hand achieves dramatic effect.
Joining Jeremy Lewis, Editor-in-Chief and Founder of Garmento Zine, Comey takes to the stage at MAD for a discussion exploring her unique design process and work. From the inspiration she finds in the intimate realities of those she respects and admires–her girlfriends, her heroines, even the woman she thinks she would like to be–to her punchy, yet matter-of-fact take on dressing, this evening offers a rare insight into Comey’s creation of work that imparts to the wearer both confidence and elegance.
