We were thrilled to have talented designer Rachel Antonoff give us a glimpse into her one-of-a-kind workplace! We adore the way quirky embellishments and meaningful collectibles surround racks of patterned pieces and printed dresses. With indie-inspired designs and exciting collaborations under her belt, it’s no wonder this New York-based businesswoman has a stylish studio to showcase!
When did you decide to become a designer?
It was never an actual decision; I really fell into it. About six years ago, my roommate and I had some ideas for dresses and we made three samples. It just kind of snowballed from there.
Recognize this Glitter Girl?
What details in your studio make it a unique reflection of you?
I’m a real collector, and I have little things all over my studio from different trips and times. I love filling the space with things that have different meanings.
How would you describe the clothing you design?
I like to think it’s fun and comfortable and a bit silly.
Tell us about your personal style. Are your designs an extension of it?
My designs are definitely an extension of my personal style, but my day-to-day is definitely more casual. I put a really high premium on comfort, so when I’m working, I’m in leggings and a hoodie more often than not. In the summer, I’m pretty much always in dresses. My Bass saddles are a staple.
How do you stay inspired?
I always find inspiration in the most unexpected of places, so I pretty much just wait to see when it will strike.
What is your favorite part about having such a creative career?
Getting to do something I love for a living is pretty wonderful.
How do you live a sparkly life?
My friends and family make my life sparkle!
