Brooklyn Industries’ summer window installations have come to life with crepe paper streamers dancing in the breeze, simulating the movement of a cool gust of wind on a warm summer’s day. Stop by and feel the breeze!

BEHIND THE DESIGN: THE ANDREANA DRESS

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

Read more about Brooklyn Industries’ Andreana Dress, designed by our Smith Street store‘s own Noel!

Our 2010 summer intern,  Noel, who is also a BKI employee at the Smith Street store, had the exciting opportunity to design this dress for Brooklyn Industries. Noel originally presented a rough sketch of the dress at our sketch selection meeting, and then she began to develop it from an idea to a full design. She wanted to design a special dress that would be a fun and flirty, with a daytime-to-evening look. We worked with a print designer to create a dress print that complemented our summer inspiration of African art and design. The print is an Art Nouveau floral design – very feminine, graphic and whimsical. The print works perfectly on this strappy, faux wrap bustier dress with a bright orange sash. It was a pleasure having Noel intern with the design team last summer to create this beautiful dress.”
