Designer Shabd Simon-Alexander creates limited edition collectionsbased on simple feminine shapes with attention to fabric combinationsand compositions. Her approach to working with fabrics draws fromminimalist art, quiltmaking, and the folk costume tradition ofbeginning one dress with the remnants from the last.

Shebegan doing her own hand dying to create fabrics that could interactplayfully with the rigidity of manufactured prints. She now offers alimited edition line of hand dyed accent pieces, inspired by Hubbletelescope photos of worlds being born and stars dying. They bringdesign, chance and chaos into a perfect balance.

Respondingto your requests, the collection, previously sold exclusively inJapan, is available online for the first time. For custom or wholesalepricing and inquiries, please contact

Shabd's pieces are all dyed by hand in her Brooklyn studio. Most of the style are made by hand here as well, while others are bought as blanks from manufacturers using local manufacturing and/or organic materials. Each piece is 100% unique.
