GRETCHEN JONES NYC

Although designer Getchen Jone now calls Brooklyn home, she has never lost touch with her rural, western roots: her designs are infused with an earthy Americana and a lingering 1970's romanticism. Gretchen's aesthetic is informed by everything from her ever-expanding record collection to the landscapes of her childhood home in Colorado and, later, Oregon. Beyond that, she draws her inspiration from everyday, focusing on the symbiotic relationships between fashion, art, music, literature, architecture, and nature.

A past winner of Project Runway 8, Gretchen strives to create pieces that are sophisticated, modern, and luxurious, while retaining a focus on social and environmental consciousness. Throughout all her designs she works to maintain a connection with rustic and artisanal, preferring to work primarily with natural materials -- leather, silk, wool, linen, bamboo, organic cotton, wood, brass and gemstones. In addition, the line is produced domestically and is aligned with the Save the Garment Centre, a NYC-based organization which supports local and international craftspeople and focuses on ethical business practices.
