Carly Cushnie, co-founder of Cushnie et Ochs, has been blazing through the fashion world since graduating Parsons School of Design (where her senior collection was impressively featured in a front page WWD story). Cushnie teamed up with Michelle Ochs, her longtime friend and fellow Parsons alum, and the duo has become a celebrity staple – even gracing the bod of fabulous First Lady Michelle Obama.
Craving sexy clothing that was anything but vulgar, Cushnie et Ochs set out to redefine the little dress (think innovative cutouts, straps and necklines). Cushnie herself is a fan of black-on-black clothing, and her rocker-chic influence shines through in the bare midriffs and leather frocks.
